Hexicon and EGI bundle their expertise to optimise floating wind transmission connections

Hexicon and Elia Grid International (EGI) join forces to connect the wind energy produced by Floating Offshore Windfarms (FOW) to the onshore grid, and that on a global scale. The two companies will develop concepts and projects to integrate large scale floating offshore wind parks into the onshore power systems. The 5-year long cooperation consists of two phases, covering the provision of advanced expertise during both the pre-development and the development phases of the projects. Work is expected to start in June 2022.
