The Danish Energy Agency has published the final tender conditions for the tendering of Thor offshore wind farm. With the publication all the basic elements of the tender are in place, and the bidders now have four months to prepare their final bid for the offshore wind farm.
Earlier this year, state aid for Thor Offshore Wind Farm was approved by the European Commission, and in May, the plan for Thorwas environmentally approved on the basis of a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). As part of the tendering process, the Danish Energy Agency, in line with previous Danish offshore wind tenders, has carried out a negotiation phase, which has provided for adjustments in the tender conditions with the aim to reduce the bid price for the offshore wind farm. The offshore wind farm is tendered with a flexibility of 800-1000 MW. In addition the grid connection from the wind farm to the shore is included in the tender. Thor must be fully established and connected to the grid no later than by the end of 2027, and the licence for electricity production is given for 30 years with the possibility of an extension for 5 years.
