RWE has selected Port of Thorsminde from which to carry out the operation and maintenance of its Thor Offshore Wind Farm. Both companies have now signed a corresponding Letter of Intent to support the arrangement.
With the planned operations and maintenance base in Thorsminde, RWE intends to contribute to the local economy and community by creating up to 60 permanent jobs in the long-run. This includes technicians, engineers, nautical personnel as well as crew for the service vessels. It is expected that the new service station will be fully operational from 2026 onwards. RWE plans to support its wind farm for at least 30 years from this port. In addition, RWE wants to use part of the port during the construction of the wind farm. It is expected that the project’s first survey works will be carried out from the port, smaller components will be shipped out and construction crews will be transported to their offshore workplace. RWE plans to establish its base at Thorsminde by Spring next year. The 1000MW wind farm will be built off the Danish west coast - approximately 22 kilometres from the port of Thorsminde.
