First Power Flows from Vattenfall’s Vesterhav Nord Offshore Wind Farm

Vesterhav Nord (North) offshore wind farm, owned by Vattenfall, started producing power on 16 February, joining its sister park Vesterhav Syd, which began generating electricity in January 2024.

Vesterhav Nord is part of Vattenfall’s 344 MW Vesterhav duo, whose 168 MW Vesterhav Syd (South) has been feeding power into the Danish grid since January.

The 176 MW Vesterhav Nord offshore wind farm will be able to supply fossil-free energy to 180,000 Danish households once all 21 wind turbines are connected which is planned to happen before the end of March.

The Danish Energy Agency approved the construction of the two projects in December 2020 and granted Vattenfall an electricity production permit for the 344 MW Vesterhav duo in Summer 2023.

“It is with great pride that we are now sending the first fossil-free power ashore from Vesterhav Nord as well. It has been an exciting task with many challenges since we won the tender in 2016, and it is great to see the efforts bear fruit thanks to a great effort from the many involved,” said Mathilde Damsgaard, project director for Vesterhav South and North at Vattenfall.


Vattenfall said it was clear last year that Vesterhav Nord would not be fully connected within the deadline (31 December 2023) included in the agreement with the state. The company has therefore applied to the authorities for a deadline extension and is still in dialogue with the Danish Energy Agency about this, according to Vattenfall.

The Vesterhav Nord is located west of the coast of Vejlbi, and the Vesterhav Syd is located close to the Sondervig coast. The two wind farms comprise 41 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW wind turbines.
