Vattenfall closer to coastal Danish wind farms

A broad political agreement in Denmark now determines that Sweden's Vattenfall will be allowed to construct coastal wind turbines of 350 MW in the country. The project hung in the balance until the final hour.

After the coastal tender was pushed further into the future for many months, it has now been settled. About nine kilomteters off the coast.

Turbine manufacturer Vattenfall finally received clarity Thursday night. More than two months after the Swedish company won the tender to construct coastal wind turbines of 350 MW for a very low price of DKK 0.475 (EUR 0.064) per kWh, a political majority has now decided that the company will be allowed to build the turbines. The approval came as part of a final agreement in the Danish Parliament on green energy funding, where it was also decided to abolish the public service obligation (PSO).
