Siemens has handed over the first four North Sea grid connections to its customer TenneT. The German-Dutch transmission grid operator has accepted the projects following successful completion of test runs by Siemens. The grid connections HelWin1 and HelWin2, BorWin2 and SylWin1 are therefore now in commercial operation. BorWin3, the fifth grid connection, which was contracted in spring 2014, is slated to go on-line in 2019. In June 2017 Siemens has been awarded with the grid connection DolWin6, which is scheduled to go into operation in 2023. About five million households will be supplied with electricity generated from wind power via this six links.
