The Danish Energy Agency has approved Vattenfall's construction plans for and environmental assessment of the offshore wind farms Vesterhav Syd and Nord.
For Vesterhav Syd (170MW) the 20 turbines will be located around nine kilometres off the coast. For Vesterhav Nord (180MW), the northernmost turbine, out of 21, will be moving from its originally planned location to about eight kilometres off the coast.
In addition to the location of the turbines, Vattenfall will install a radar system that allows the light markings on the turbines to be dimmed at night, provided the Danish Transport, Construction and Housing Authority approves it. Approval of the radar system must be given by the Danish Transport, Construction and Housing Authority by the end of Q2 2021 in order for the radar system to be integrated optimally with the other processes in the projects.
Both offshore wind farms must be connected by 31 December 2023. Siemens Gamesa has been selected to deliver 41 8.4-167 wind turbines.
