14 Oct 2021: On 14 October 2021, the Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities issued a new order to expand the feasibility study area at Energiø Bornholm. This would increase potential capacity from 2 GW to 3 GW.  A prerequisite for having room for more offshore wind is that the border is moved in to 15 km from the coast. Experience from other offshore wind turbine projects shows that it is appropriate to pre-study a larger area, because parts of the areas may prove to be unusable.  At the same time, the waters off Bornholm may be a relevant alternative to Hesselø Offshore Wind Farm if it cannot be realized. The supply of Hesselø Offshore Wind Farm has been put on hold after the feasibility studies have shown that there are areas with soft bottoms that could indicate less favorable conditions than originally assumed in the fine screening of the area. If it turns out that the area by Hesselø cannot be used, the planned offshore wind farm must be located elsewhere. The location at Energiø Bornholm is one of several possible alternatives to Hesselø, which the Danish Energy Agency is investigating. The area around Bornholm may also be relevant if it is politically decided to expand with more wind by 2030. The order only provides an opportunity to study the areas, and it will require a new political decision to use the expanded areas for the establishment of offshore wind. In addition to offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea, the order includes feasibility studies for cable connections between the energy island and offshore wind farms, export cables to Zealand and international connections to neighboring countries ( interconnectors ).
