Sund & Bælt to Sell Sprogø Offshore Wind Farm

Sund & Bælt has launched the sales process for its 21MW Sprogø offshore wind farm in the Great Belt strait between the islands of Zealand and Funen in Denmark.

The seven V90-3MW Vestas wind turbines are being sold through an open tender to ensure a broad range of interested Danish and foreign buyers and to achieve the best price, the Danish holding company said.

Mikkel Hemmingsen, Sund & Bælt’s CEO, said: “We believe it is a good time to sell the wind turbines as there is increasing awareness of the importance of green energy in both Denmark and across Europe. We are committed to that agenda, but we also believe that the wind farm can be run more efficiently by a larger player in the market. We are currently implementing a new business strategy, and the sale of the turbines will mean that we can focus solely on infrastructure and payment management.”

The Sprogø offshore wind farm, serviced by MHI Vestas, entered production at the end of 2009. It generates approximately 66 million kWh annually.

Sund & Bælt, through its subsidiaries, primarily owns and operates fixed links in Denmark and internationally. The Sprogø offshore wind farm is part of the Storebælt fixed link.
