Wind Energy – Denmark
Yesterday, in the presence of the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Dan Jørgensen, RWE has signed a concession agreement with the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen).
The concession grants the right to construct and operate the Thor offshore wind farm for 30 years.
With a planned capacity of around 1,000 megawatts, Thor will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm to date.
The wind farm will be built off the Danish west coast and is scheduled to reach full operation in 2027. Once fully operational, Thor would be capable of producing enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of more than one million Danish households.
“Scandinavia, and Denmark in particular, are important strategic growth markets for us. Denmark not only has very favourable wind conditions, the country also has ambitions to deploy even more offshore wind power. We are looking forward to working with the Danish Government and other partners, and in the upcoming months, we will be starting our preliminary surveys. With Thor, we have two projects off the Danish coast and this means that we are making a major contribution to Denmark’s green energy transition,” said Pål Coldevin, Executive Vice President for Offshore Development Nordics, Poland and Baltics at RWE Renewables.
