14 Sep 2020: Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug held an investor meeting in mid-September 2020. Accounts for the first half of 2020 currently look "really bad due to the low electricity prices during the pandemic. We still believe that the turbines will produce what they need in the second half of the year. And we are moving forward according to the adjusted budget" Since early 2019 Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug has been in conversation with HOFOR regarding the future of the project. A working group has been set up to shed light on various possible paths to take. Three options under consideration include: 1. decommissioning of the wind farm at the end of the concession; 2. renovation of the existing wind turbines; 3. repowering i.e. installation of new wind turbines. After intense negotiations in November / December 2019, HOFOR announced in February 2020 that the company would go its own way and would examine the possibilities for moving forward with repowering. HOFOR reportedly "would very much like to start with EIA investigations regarding the installation of new wind turbines". Likely to go down a different route, Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug's deputy chairman, Per Vølund has remarked support for "recycled turbines" by renovating the existing models. Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug have been in contact with turbine suppliers and conclude that smaller offshore models are no longer being produced by Siemens Gamesa or MHI Vestas. To install more powerful turbines would also require larger foundations which is considered uneconomical. Air traffic also limits the installation of much larger turbines. Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug have applied to the Danish Energy Agency for an extension of our concession period by 5 years, so that it can operate the wind turbines until end-2030. According to Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug it is unlikely to have made enough savings for a dismantling campaign in 2022. The extension will give Middelgrundens Vindmøllelaug additional time to earn financial resources necessary for any decommissioning or repowering plans.
