ABB has successfully commissioned and handed over the DolWin2 offshore wind transmission link to the


 DolWin2 is the third offshore wind connection project that ABB has executed for TenneT in Germany’s North Sea, following BorWin1 and DolWin1. The high voltage direct current (HVDC) link connects offshore wind farms to the mainland grid, and has the capacity to supply more than a million households with renewable energy. DolWin2 supports Germany’s “Energiewende” roadmap, which aims to generate more than 6.5 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind power by 2020, and 15 GW by 2030.

“We are very pleased to have successfully commissioned and handed over the DolWin2 project and would like to thank TenneT for their continuing trust and cooperation,” said Claudio Facchin, President of ABB’s Power Grids division.

“HVDC is the technology of choice for reliably and efficiently transmitting large amounts of power over long distances with minimal losses. It is ideal for integrating remote renewable energy into the power grid and plays a key role in making ABB partner of choice for enabling a stronger, smarter and greener grid, in line with our Next Level strategy.”
