Project experience and advanced design for substations and converter stations

Substations are the vital links for a future supergrid, and the key to success for offshore wind energy. The need to reduce cost throughout the value chain - while maintaining maximum reliability - remains a powerful driver for innovation in this field.

Join us for a focused two-day conference + workshop day, and

  • Discover new design approaches and installation concepts in 8 exclusive case studies
