VattenfallTurbine installation has reached a the halfway point at the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm off the Danish coast. Horns Rev 3 is the first and largest project to be built in Danish waters for five years. Project developer Vattenfall anticipates that turbine installation will be completed by the end of the year.

The first 49 MHI Vestas
V164-8.0 MW turbines was installed on 19th July followed by number 25 of 3rd November. Work is being completed by Global Wind Service (GWS) and MHI Vestas using Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's jack-up vessel Brave Tern.

When complete the 406.7MW
Horns Rev 3 project is expected to be capable of providing enough power to satisfy the annual electricity consumption of 425,000 Danish households. It is located 20km from shore, near the Horns Rev 1 and Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farms.

Vattenfall is also currently developing the 610MW
Kriegers Flak  and 350MW Vesterhav Nord and Vesterhav Syd wind farms off the coast of Denmark.

Construction permission for
Kriegers Flak was granted to Vattenfall in November 2016 with a  winning bid of €49.9/MWh. The wind farm will also establish an interconnection between the Danish and German mainland grids via two subsea cables connecting  Kriegers Flak to the  Baltic 1 and Baltic 2 wind farms. This interconnector will therefore allow for an increased exchange of electricity between Denmark and Germany.

Vattenfall won the Danish near-shore wind tender for
Vesterhav Nord and Vesterhav Syd back in September 2016 with a bid of DKK 475/MWh (€63.8/MWh). The two sites are located on the west coast of Jutland and will have a total capacity of 350MW. Vesterhav Syd will be the larger of the two sites with a 180MW capacity and Vesterhav Nord will have a 170MW capacity, both projects combined are expected to provide sustainable energy for 375,000 households annually.
