Together, TSC members Energinet.dk, the Danish transmission system operator (TSO), and 50Hertz, one of the four German TSOs, plan to build an 400MW interconnection between the Eastern Danish and German electricity grids via the Baltic Sea. Now the Danish Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate has approved Energinet.dk’s investment application.
It is the world’s first interconnection between two countries that also connects two countries’ offshore wind farms. The unique so-called combined grid solution (CGS) will connect the Danish offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak to the submarine cables running from the German side to the two German offshore wind farms Baltic 1 and 2.
