TenneT has unveiled what it calls a wind power booster concept for Germany to help unlock the potential of offshore wind in the North Sea.

The concept would be made up of three offshore network systems interconnected in such a way that 6GW of power would be bundled.

The network connection points are to be located in Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony and Bremen.

TenneT said this creates the best conditions for the production of hydrogen and thus supports the decarbonisation of the industry.

The company added that direct current (DC) lines on land and at sea are designed in a meshed system.
