The heart of the BorWin 2 grid connection is the BorWin beta offshore converter platform, which houses the Siemens system for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission. Successfully installing this system on the high seas was the most critical part of the project. Apart from constructing and installing the offshore platform itself, which transforms the alternating current generated into direct current for low-loss transmission, a submarine cable had to be laid and a converter station set up on the mainland. That is where the power delivered from the offshore generating installations is converted into alternating current for feed into the national grid.
