Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners has announced that Shell is joining the VindØ consortium. The consortium is aiming to take a leading role in developing and building Denmark’s first energy island.
The announcement follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which Shell signed in June 2022 to join the VindØ consortium. The other consortium partners are PensionDanmark and PFA - and Andel, as well as Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners. The consortium’s vision is an artificial ‘energy island’ in the Danish part of the North Sea - approximately 80-100 kilometers off the Danish west coast. The island will be able to connect 10 GW of offshore wind to Denmark and other neighboring countries, plus host an innovation zone with potential for large-scale Power-to-X production and energy storage. It would include accommodation and operation and maintenance services from onsite harbour facilities. To develop the island, a partnership agreement has been signed with DEME, Boskalis, and MT Højgaard.
