In 2013 Keppel Verolme BV, (Keppel Verolme) a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M), has successfully completed and installed a floating, self-erecting substation platform Global Tech 1, at an offshore wind park in the German Exclusive Economic Zone in the North Sea.

Installed at a water depth of 40 meters, the substation platform will collect and step up the electricity generated by the offshore wind park's 80 wind generating turbines, each with a capacity of 5 MW, to feed into Germany's national power grid. It is also equipped with critical control systems to serve as a backup power supply for the wind farm in case of emergencies and provides permanent accommodation for up to 32 people. This substation platform contains transformers and high voltage switchgear integrated onto a Mobile Offshore Application Barge (MOAB), a specialised barge designed and developed by Overdick GmbH & Co.

Keppel Verolme carried out the detailed engineering and construction of the MOAB at its yard in Rotterdam while its consortium partner, Alstom Grid GmbH (Alstom), supplied and installed the medium and high voltage equipment, power transformers as well as the protection and control systems. . The platform is the centre piece of the Global Tech 1 North Sea wind park where the electricity generated by its 80 wind turbines is merged and the voltage transformed from 33 to 155 kilovolt. Currently still under construction, Global Tech I is located approximately 100 km from the Dutch shore. When fully operational, this wind park will be capable of generating some 1.4 billion kilowatthours (kWh) of electrical energy annually, supplying 445.000 households with clean energy.
