Bernard Controls equips substation

Bernard Controls Benelux recently intervened on the Horns Rev C high voltage substation, an offshore AC transformer platform whose main goal is to collect the electrical energy from the windmill park, transform it to a higher voltage level and subsequently bring it to shore. Bernard Controls, by installing and commissioning 16 quarter-turn actuators, namely two FQ12, eight SQ60 and six SQ100, took part in the collective works.

Two failsafe actuators (FQ12) were requested to operate on cooling valves inside the AC transformer unit. This FQ range is particularly adapted to all high safety applications such as heat control and ventilation of hazardous areas.

At the heart of the 400MW Horns Rev III offshore wind farm and located in the eastern North Sea, the Horns Rev C high voltage substation is part of a 15 year wind farms industry development project in Denmark. It occupies a leading role in the wind farms industry today, providing for example 42% of the total consumption of energy supply in 2015. Horns Rev III will be inaugurated in 2018 and is expected to generate green power for 450,000 households.
