Ten years ago, Ørsted began the establishment of offshore wind farm Anholt. The project approval came after a somewhat one-sided tender, as the energy company was the sole bidder and thus secured the project with a settlement price of DKK 1.05 per kWh.
For the Thor tender, the scenario has changed, to say the least. Six consortia with participation from key players in the industry took part in the tender. But more so, several of them are prepared to set up the park with the much lower settlement price of DKK 0.01 per kWh, which is the lowest bid allowed by the Danish authorities.
