Well-Connected: HV Tests in the Dry Dock

A simple HV test for off-shore wind farms, like Borkum West II, can become a real challenge. That is because if the cable system is in the dry dock or has been installed as a floating system next to the quay, the truck carrying the test transformer is unable to get close enough to do the test.
