Vattenfall ensured victory for the Swedish company this Wednesday in the tender for coming Danish offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak of 600 MW. The winning bid was an all-time low of DKK 0.372 (EUR 0.049) per kilowatt-hour.
This is an obvious world record and much cheaper than prices for other farms previously won by Vattenfall. At the same time, it is also significantly below the price from when Danish rival Dong Energy won the auction this summer for two Dutch wind farms Borssele 1 and 2 of 700 MW. This price came to DKK 0.54 per kilowatt-hour, which was described as historically low at the time.
