The largest gravity-based structure of 10,000 tons to the second of Kriegers Flak two transformer substations was installed on February 22, a few days after Jan de Nul installed the first one. The installation of each substation took around 10 hours.

The two platforms are located nearly 8 km apart, as the wind farm is divided into two areas. Kriegers Flak A, the west end, has a capacity of 200 MW. The East end, Kriegers Flak B, has a total capacity of 400 MW. The Kriegers Flak B substation will simultaneously connect Kriegers Flak and the German Baltic Windmill Baltic 2.

The actual transformer substations will be be installed this summer. This is the first occurrence of offshore wind farms being used to connect power supplies of two countries. The joint project between Germany and Denmark, supported by the EU, is carried out by the Danish energy network.dk and the German company 50Hertz.

The multifunctional vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant is now in the process of ballast and protection work. Both of the substations were built on a barge in the port of Oostende in Belgium. The barge was tugged to Køge in Denmark in January 2018, where they have been waiting for the right weather conditions.
