The Danish Energy Agency has given the green light to RWE’s preliminary studies at the site where the 1GW Thor wind farm is to be set up.

This enables the German utility to initiate technical qualifications for the project and thereby study whether the wind turbine foundation design and cable design are viable.

The Thor Wind Farm is slated for completion in 2027, and RWE will therefore start setting up shop in the Port of Thorsminde over the course of 2023. By 2026-2027, RWE will start operating the wind farm and set up a service station.
