Offshore Wind farms in Estonia

Estonia has 34 offshore wind farm projects of which none currently operating, none where construction has progressed enough to connect the turbines and generate electricity, none are in the build phase, and 1 are either consented or have applied for consent. You can access over 80 data sets on each wind farm subject to your access level and drill down to see items such as:

on project 'ELWIND' on Monday, 13 September 2021, the following was announced: 'Estonia and Latvia have commenced the siting process for a joint hybrid offshore wind energy project in the Baltic Sea. The ElWind project is planned to be 700–1000 MW, generating 3 TWh annually.
Procurement for the pre-feasibility study contractor concluded ahead of schedule in September, with awards to Hendrikson & KO and Pondera Consult. The study results should be made available before the end of the year. Therefore, it is possible that the decision on selecting specific areas for further development may be adopted in the early 2022.
Several locations of approximately 200 km2 each, assuming a power density of 5-7 MW/km2, with the Latvian and Estonian EEZ are under consideration. Potential offshore wind zones were considered in Estonia’s draft Marine Spatial Plan.
The project is led by Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia, Ministry of Economics of Latvia, Environmental Investment Centre of Estonia (KIK) and Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA). In late 2020, Ministers signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for completion of the joint project by 2030, with a tender in 2026.
Estonia and Latvia are planning to apply for co-financing for the construction of the grid from CEF RES (The Connecting Europe Facility of Renewable Energy) funds, as ELWIND project involves two countries and it could be qualified as regional status project.'
