Hohe See is a 497MW offshore wind farm situated approximately 98km offshore the German coast and 90km north
of Borkum island, in the exclusive economic zone of the North Sea. The project site covers an area of roughly 42km². The water depth at the site is up to 40m.
The wind farm will feature 71 Siemens SWT-7.0-154 turbines rated at 7MW each. The SWT-7.0-154 turbine has a rotor diameter of 154m, hub height of 105m, and a height of 182m to blade tip.
Each turbine tower, including the nacelle and rotor blades, weighs 755t. The rotors cover an area of 18,630m², which is the equivalent of 2.6 football pitches.
Offshore Fibre Solutions involvement was to terminate and test the fibre optic element of the array cables on the wind turbines and offshore substation.
