Wind Energy – Grid Connection
Vattenfall has now completed 100 per cent of the offshore wind farm Vesterhav Syd.
This means Vattenfall is delivering fossil free energy to 170.000 Danish households.
Every single turbine at the offshore windfarm Vesterhav Syd has now supplied the first power and the offshore wind farm is now completely connected to the Danish power grid.
The milestone is the culmination of almost seven years’ work on the offshore wind farm.
Vesterhav Syd’s 20 wind turbines were erected from July to September last year. On 10 November 2023, Vattenfall delivered the farm’s first power. Since then, the turbines have been connected to the grid one by one and the wind farm is now 100 per cent completed.
Vattenfall is also operating Vesterhav Nord offshore wind farm approximately 80 kilometers from the southern twin. Vattenfall expects to connect Vesterhav North to the grid during the first quarter this year.
Combined, the Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord offshore wind farms will generate fossil-free electricity equivalent to the consumption of more than 350.000 Danish households.
