The three wind parks will supply a total output of 800 megawatts to mainland Germany, ABB announced on Friday.

ABB will use the eco-friendly high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology to connect the wind parks’ power to the network.

The clean energy will have to travel 165 kilometres under water and land.

ABB will be responsible for the development, design, delivery and installation of the various platforms, stations and connecting cables.
