Denmark’s transmission system operator Energinet has selected the UK marine survey specialist Gardline Ltd to carry out preliminary geotechnical investigations at the Hesselø offshore wind farm.
The Hesselø offshore wind farm is located north of Sealand in Kattegat, in Hesselø Bay, at a distance of 30 kilometres from Sealand and around 20 kilometres from the Hesselø island.
The wind farm will have an installed capacity of between 800 MW and 1,200 MW and can thus potentially become the largest offshore wind farm in Denmark.
Initially, Hesselø was scheduled for commissioning in 2028, but according to the recently approved Climate Action Plan, both Hesselø and Thor will be commissioned in 2027.
The tendering procedure for the development of the wind farm is scheduled to start in 2021 and the winner is expected to be selected in 2022.
