For Energinet.dk, Seaway Heavy Lifting has performed the installation of the Anholt transformer platform topsides in the North Sea, located between the Danish island of Anholt and the mainland, coastal city of Grenaa.The transformer platform is part of the 400 MW Anholt offshore wind farm. The purpose of the offshore substation is to collect the electrical energy from the offshore wind farm, transform it to another voltage level and bring it ashore. The installation has been executed with the 2,500 t crane vessel ‘Stanislav Yudin’ on April 6th.
