Eltek to equip offshore wind project in Germany

Eltek secured a key order for advanced power supply systems for the operation of the DolWin3 off shore wind energy project in Germany.

Eltek equipment will supply secure power to protection and control equipment for the on-shore high voltage DC (HVDC) substation that transfers electricity generated by offshore wind turbines in the North Sea to the German power grid.

Deliveries will include DC power supplies, inverters, batteries and associated services. The order was placed by Alstom Grid, a global supplier of power generation, transmission and distribution solutions and equipment. Alstom Grid was awarded the DolWin3 project by transmission system operator TenneT.
