A huge component of German wind farm has left shore

Arkona site in the Baltic Sea
A multi-thousand ton transformer station for the Arkona wind farm has left its French shipyard for Baltic Sea installation, a partnership announced.

Germen utility company E.ON and Norwegian energy major Statoil are working together on the installations necessary to get the wind farm in German waters up and running.

At a weight of more than 5,000 tons and more than 30 stories high, the transformer station started its two week journey from a French shipyard to the Arkona site in the Baltic Sea. Once installed, it will become the central power component of the installation.

Holger Matthiesen, E.ON's project director, said that moving ahead on time and on budget is a testament to the strength of bilateral cooperation on clean energy.
