WPD and Wind-projekt filed “open door application” for a 455MW offshore wind farm at the Danish part of Kriegers Flak.
Danish Offshore Wind A/S has on Friday, 25th of August, handed in an open door application to the Danish Energy Authority about investigating possibilities for the establishment of an offshore wind farm at the Danish side of Kriegers Flak. Danish Offshore is a joint venture between the companies WPD and Wind-projekt. The area Kriegers Flak is situated approximately 25 km east of Mon and the application covers at a maximum 91 turbines in the size of 5MW. WPD and Wind-Projekt have already developed the offshore wind farms on the German and Swedish side of Kriegers Flak. The two projects are Kriegers Flak I (Germany, 80 turbines in the size of 5MW, permissions received for wind farms and cabling) and Kriegers Flak II (Sweden, 128 turbines in the size of 5MW, permission received for wind farm, since May 2005 owned by Vattenfall having WPD as a consultant). If also the Danish side of Kriegers Flak would be used for wind power, the total complex will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world with up to 299 turbines and an output of up to 1,5GW. It is also the first international wind farm area with projects from three countries meeting each other.
