Vattenfall has had to re-design its turbine layout and produce a supplemental
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the project after the Danish
Energy Board decided to revoke the project permits in late 2018. In the
new draft documents the 20 turbines in the Syd area will be located 9 km
offshore, which doubles the distance compared to the wind turbines closest
to the coast in the original design.
Turbine layout in the Nord area has also been revised to maximise the distance
of the 21 turbines from shore. Vattenfall hope to complete the EIA this
summer after which the DEA will launch a public consultation. The project
is now due online by 2023 after the DEA granted a three extension to the
Despite delays to the wind farm, Energinet nears completion of the onshore
transmission system. Work has included the construction of two new substations
at Engbjerg and Søndervig and ~83km of 150 kV cabling to connect to the
Danish grid. Cabling was supplied by LS Cable and installed by Per Aarsleff.
Electrical components for the substations were supplied by GE, Getra, Siemens
and BESTtrafo with Kaj Bech and Caverion undertaking the substation construction
Energinet stated that the system is now energized and almost all construction
works are finished.
