EON connects the island Helgoland to the power network
Up to now power was supplied to the island of Helgoland in the North Sea via Diesel power engines which were starting to age. The 7 million litres of Diesel consumed annually are omitted in the future and also 17.500 tons of CO². Now a 20 million Euro project has been set up to connect Helgoland to the European power supply network. For this reason a 51,7 km long pipeline was installed within only 12 days from the land-based city of St. Peter Ording to Helgoland.
