European Energy A/S has now officially filed for permission to build its two Danish offshore wind farms.

The 240 MW
Jammerland Bugt (Jammerland Bay) and the 320 MW Omø Syd (Omø South) were greenlit for preliminary environmental impact assessments five months ago. To date, European Energy has commenced technical inspections of the proposed sites’ sea beds and determined that the wind farm developments are viable.
 
I am very pleased that today we have officially requested the permission to build our two offshore wind farms Omø South and Jammerland Bay”, said Knud Erik Anderson, European Energy’s CEO. “We look forward to presenting our final design and choice of wind turbines before the end of 2021 in order to begin installation by 2023 with grid connection later that same year.”


The projects are part of Denmark’s Open Door programme. European Energy first announced these developments under the procedure in 2012. Anderson describes the application process, which has taken eight years so far, as “thorough”.


The next stage is for the developer to work with the Danish Energy Agency to agree on a final timeline. Following this, European Energy will present a supplement to the environmental impact assessment, including the projects’ final design schemes.
