Havsul I commissioning extension gets revoked


Norway's Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has made a decision in the appeal cases regarding the commissioning for the
Havsul I wind farm. The Ministry has decided to reverse the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate decision to give Havsul I  wind turbines a postponed deadline for commissioning until 2025.

Following an application from Havsul I AS, NVE granted an extension until 2025. However this decision was appealed by several interest groups. NVE passed the decision to The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy which made an in-depth assessment of whether a grace period should be granted for the project.

The Ministry outlined in its findings, that both the original license and the impact assessment are old and need updates, and that the licensee needs further deadlines and license changes beyond what was applied for before the project could possibly be realigned.

The project has a long history; original permits were granted in 2008 for the construction of 44-117 3-8 MW turbines, with expected commissioning in 2013.
