10 Oct 2022: A consultation on Hesselø OWF has been initiated before upcoming environmental impact assessments. Following relocation of the offshore wind tender area, the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) invites the public, companies, authorities and other interested in the coming Hesselø OWF to submit ideas for the sea-based part of the strategic environmental assessment (SEA) from the 10 October to 14 November 2022. This public consultation of Hesselø OWF in its early scoping phase. The consultation will decide the topics and environmental impacts to be included in the sea based part of the SEA. The land-based part of the Hesselø OWF (both SEA and environmental impact assessment (EIA)) is unchanged. Based on the ideas and inputs received during the consultation, the Danish Energy Agency will decide on the scope of the offshore SEA. Energinet will carry out the environmental assessment overseen by the DEA. The results of the environmental assessment should be published and subject to a second public consultation in the first half of 2024. The Danish Environmental Protection Agency expects mid-2024 to issue the EIA-permit (§ 25 of the Danish Environmental Assessment Act) for the land-based part of the project, provided that the EIA-process allows the project to be carried out in light of the results of the assessment, which will be published in early 2024. The EIA process will evaluate various environmental aspects in addition to assessing if the project will damage Natura 2000 areas Gilleleje Flak, Tragten, Grib-skov and EC Bird Protection area Arresso, according to the EU Habitats Directive. It will also consider the impact of the proposed OWF OWF in the broader area of Kattegat including its Swedish part, as well as the cumulative effects of Swedish offshore wind farms; Galatea-Galene, Stora Middelgrund and Anholt. The EIA of the sea-based part of the project is expected to be carried out in 2025-2026 by the winning developer, with a scoping phase in 2025. This will be followed by a second public consultation on the EIA report in 2026. If the EIA process approves the project, the DEA is expected to issue the construction license and EIA permit for Hesselø OWF in late 2026. Deadline for full commissioning of the wind farm is by the end of 2029.
