600MW Kriegers Flak Attracts 8 Bidders

Danish Energy Agency (DEA) reported yesterday that it received eight applications for pre-qualification to participate in the tender for the 600MW Kriegers Flak, Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm.

This is the largest number of applicants for a wind farm tender in Danish wind history. DEA said that the great interest shows that Denmark offers attractive framework conditions and an effective and transparent bidding process.

DEA will now examine whether the applications meet the economic, financial and technical minimum criteria in the contract notice from May 6, 2015.

Subject to the outcome, the Energy Authority will inform applicants and subsequently publish the names of the candidates who are pre-qualified to participate.

The tender for the Kriegers Flak will take more than a year and involves a negotiation process with the bidders. The final and binding offers must be submitted on November 8, 2016.
