The Danish Energy Agency invites the public, companies, authorities and other interested in the coming Hesselø OWF to submit remarks on the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the plan for the revised southern location of Hesselø offshore wind farm (OWF).
 
The public consultation of the revised SEA of the plan for Hesselø OWF runs from the 5 February to 5 April 2024.
 
In connection with the consultation, a public meeting will be held in Gilleleje, where the results of the environmental report will be presented. After the consultation, the Danish Energy Agency will examine the remarks, and if necessary update the plan accordingly. Hereafter, the Danish Energy Agency will make a SEA Summary Statement and publish the final plan.
 
In parallel to the SEA, Energinet (Danish TSO) is conducting an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the land-based part of the project. The Danish Environmental Protection Agency expects mid-2024 to issue the EIA-permit (§ 25 of the Danish Environmental Assessment Act) for the land-based part of the project, provided that the EIA-process allows the project to be carried out.
 
The final tender material is expected to be published during the spring of 2024, with an expected final tender deadline in February 2025. The EIA of the sea-based part of the project is expected to be carried out in 2025-2027 when the winner of the tender for Hesselø OWF has been found: the scoping phase is expected to be in 2025 and the 2nd public consultation on the EIA report is expected to be in 2027. Later in 2027, the Danish Energy Agency expects to issue the construction license (EIA-permit) for Hesselø OWF, provided that the EIA-process allows the project to be carried out.
