Dong to deliver Anholt

August 9, 2010

The Danish Energy Agency recently awarded Dong Energy the concession to build an offshore wind farm in the Kattegat Bay at a cost of DKK10 billion. The wind farm's turbines, supplied by Siemens Wind Power, will have a capacity of 3.6MW each. To be located off the island of Anholt, the facility will have a capacity of 400MW, reckoned to be sufficient to meet 4% of Denmark's power consumption.

Tender specifications dictate that the wind farm must supply its first power by late 2012, with the entire facility commissioned and all turbines connected to the grid by the end of 2013.

Failure to meet the specifications will result in reduced tariff income and a penalty.

Dong commissioned Horns Rev 2 in the Danish North Sea in 2009 and has just inaugurated the UK's Gunfleet Sands 1+2 wind farm in the Thames Estuary. OE
