The offshore windfarm Thor will be tendered through tender with negotiation and the windfarm will have an installed capacity of at least 800MW but the winner of the tender will have the possibility of installing up to 1000MW in total.
The Danish TSO Energinet has previously been responsible for constructing and operating the offshore substation and the export cables and financed the cost over the tariffs. This task will now be the responsibility of the winner as part of the scope of the project and it will be financed together with the overall subsidies for establishing the wind farm. Energinet will continue having the responsibility of constructing and operating the onshore grid connection from the onshore substation to the transmission grid. The winner of the tender must pay Energinet for the cost of constructing the onshore grid connection. Further information concerning the tender is expected to be published in the middle of 2019.
