Bladt Industries, a northern Jutland based steel contractor which specialises in manufacturing large complex steel structures, has gained an order for an offshore substation for Sweden's largest offshore wind turbine park, which is planned to be built on Lillgrund Havmøllepark. The order was placed by Siemens Wind Power, the supplier of the 48 2.3 MW wind turbines for the project, and is worth approx. DKK 40 m (USD 6.8 m) to Bladt Industries.

The Swedish power supplier Vattenfall has gained the rights to construct one of the world's largest offshore wind turbine parks, which will be placed 7 kilometres off the coast of Sweden in Øresund. The wind turbines will provide the power supply for about 60,000 households. The substation will be visible from the Øresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden, so Vattenfall has also placed great importance on the aesthetic design of the substation.

Peter Rindebæk, managing director of Bladt Industries says: "We have solved that task by making the substation round and coating it with a form of glass." The project design phase has started, while the production of the substation is planned to begin during Q3. Installation has been scheduled to start in Q2 2007. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.
