Vattenfall Delays Danish Duo

Vattenfall has delayed the construction of the Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord offshore wind projects in Denmark by three years.

According to turbine supplier Siemens Gamesa, the beginning of installation has been postponed to 2023, instead of 2020 as originally agreed.

The Danish Energy Agency recently initiated new environmental impact assessment (EIA) processes for both Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord.

An EIA supplement will now be drawn up, after which the agency will be able to make its final decision.

To remind, Vattenfall made an official turbine order with Siemens Gamesa in May last year for the supply, service and maintenance of a total of circa 350MW for the two projects.

The Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord offshore wind farms will comprise a total of 41 8MW turbines located off the west coast of Jutland.
