20-Apr-2017 Event Type: Planning - Tender Process
Tender Process Analyst Update:
Results of the April 2017 auction resulted in a significantly lower than expected weighted average award price of €4.40/MWh. The lowest price was zero and the highest €60 MWh. Four bids were accepted totalling 1490MW meaning that the remaining 60MW will carry over to the 1 April 2018 auction for 1610MW.
Winners receive a grid connection, support as bid for 20 years and a permit for 25 years of operation (with the option to extend once by five years). DONG secured three connections in total (240MW on NOR-1-1 for Borkum Borkum Riffgrund West II, 240MW on NOR-1-1 for OWP West and 110MW on NOR-3-3 for Gode Wind 3), with zero-subsidy bids for the projects connecting to NOR-1-1 (Dolwin5) and €60/MWh for Gode Wind 03 which has less economies of scale and connects a year earlier and therefore is considered to have less time to leverage new innovations. It is possible that the €60/MWh bid for Gode Wind 03 was strategically priced, made with the knowledge that there was an opportunity for a top-up project to fill any remaining auction volume that would be exceeded by the lower-priced, larger projects.
EnBW’s 900MW “He Dreiht” also secured a win with zero subsidy, also claiming the advantages of late-commissioning and scale economies. EnBW called for a review of Germany’s offshore wind goals.
DONG has clarified the following details about its transitional auction bids:
- Cluster 1 project (Borkum Riffgrund West II and OWP West) will be built as a single 480MW project using much larger turbines than available (“13-15MW turbines”).
- The transmission assets being out of scope has made a zero-bid possible.
- Cluster 1 has wind speeds in excess of 10m/s and extensive operational synergies with adjacent DONG projects.
- They expect extensive improvement and cost reduction opportunities across the balance of plant between now and 2024 including installation methods, foundations, cables, O&M lifetime etc.
- The allowance of an operational life of 30 years provides further opportunities for cost reduction.
- CAPEX per MW will be significantly lower than DKK 22-24m/MW guide price given in 2016.
- They have used a conservative estimate of German future wholesale price estimates, and added 250 basis points to WACC to account for market exposure.
- The main drivers of long-term energy prices are considered to be EU policy on CO2 prices, phase-out of coal and nuclear and the build-out of renewables. They consider national initiatives rather than regional policy as driving renewables growth. They assume a fast build-out of PV, onshore and offshore wind, all of which exert downward price pressure.
Phase-out of thermal capacity in accordance with national plans is assumed.DONG are also considering the option to lock-in prices through market-base contracts. E.g. corporate PPAs. Also hedging would be used.
- They consider winning the projects as an ‘option’ [albeit at significant cost] to build the windfarm. They may well add to the volume in next year’s tender. They are prepared to not-build the project if it appears to not create value nearer at FID. The cost of this would be €59m.
- The bid was based on a lowest price with no-regrets decision.
- Regarding the subsidy required for Gode Wind 3, it was considered to be built too early for the new turbine platform, and the site has slightly less attractive conditions.

20-Apr-2017 Event Type: Planning - Tender Process
Tender Process Analyst view for 2018 auction:
Following on from the 2017 allocation, 2679MW of connections are available in the North Sea and 785MW in the Baltic. Between these two seas a maximum of 1610MW will be auctioned (1550 plus the remaining 60MW from the 2017 auction), with a carveout of 500MW reserved for Baltic Sea projects. Therefore 1110MW remains for the North Sea.
Around 5.5GW of projects are available to compete, although it is not expected that all Baltic Sea projects will do so under their current ownership. The key driver for zero-bids outlined by both winners in the 2017 auction are a late delivery (2024 or greater) and the associated technological advances this brings, and economies of scale. Site conditions (assumed to mean wind speed) was also mentioned by
DONG. Considering these three factors – 2024 or greater delivery, economies of scale, and wind resource, a simple analysis of the remaining North Sea Projects is possible.
It is assumed that He Dreiht will not bid in 2018 having already won with a significant bid, and Gode Wind 03 will not bid for further capacity in the auction due to a high density of 27.4MW/m2 following the first auction. The allocation of 900MW to He Dreiht means there is no longer any available capacity in Cluster 7 and therefore Vattenfall’s Global Tech 2 and EnBW’s OWP Albatros (not to be confused with ENBW’s Albatros also known as Hohe See Extension) must also be excluded. Vattenfall’s Atlantis I can technically bid for 14.4MW remaining in Cluster 6 but this is unlikely to be viable and is therefore excluded from consideration also.

13-Apr-2017 Event Type: Planning - Consent Authorised
Consent Authorised The Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) announced four winners totalling 1490MW as a product of the first WindSeeG tender. DONG Energy submitted six projects and won with the following three projects which hold a total capacity of 590MW: OWP West, Borkum Riffgrund West 2 and Gode Wind 3.
OWP West and Borkum Riffgrund West 2 were awarded with no subsidy on top of the wholesale price of electricity (i.e. bids of €0/MWh); Gode Wind 3 was awarded based on a bid price of €60/MWh. Samuel Leupold, Executive Vice President and CEO of Wind Power at DONG Energy, stated that: "We have good opportunities to add further capacity to our winning projects in next year's German auction. Today's results contribute to our ambition of driving profitable growth by adding approximately 5GW of additional capacity by 2025."
Cost-drivers enabling the zero subsidy bid include:
- Significantly bigger turbines, in the range of 13-15MW, increasing electricity production while at the same time reducing the number of turbine positions, contributing significantly to cost reductions during constructions as well as over lifetime O&M.
- OWP West and Borkum Riffgrund West 2 will be combined in to one large-scale project with the option of adding additional volume in next year's auction.
- The project sites benefit from average wind speeds in excess of 10m/s.
- DONG Energy's existing O&M hub in Norddeich can service the new parks.
- German authorised have approved the possibility of extending the operational lifetime of turbines at sea from 25 to 30 years.
- The grid connection responsibility and costs are covered by TenneT, meaning the bid price is not of full scope.
Exactly 60MW of the 1550MW tender was not assigned and will therefore be carried over into the second round, currently scheduled for April 2018.

30-Jan-2017 Event Type: Planning - Tender Process
Tender Process The Federal Network Agency(Bundesnetzagentur) announce terms of first tender -
- Bids must be below 12 cents(EU) per kilowatt hour. 
- Projects with the lowest bids will win tender award. 
- The network connection capacities for the offshore wind parks will result, among other things, from the offshore network development plan 2025(Offshore-Netzentwicklungsplan 2025), which has been confirmed by the Federal Network Agency.
The first call for tenders covers 1550MWs. It will take place on 1st April 2017 and will apply to projects which are put into operation after 3st1 December 2020. All offshore wind projects which were approved before August 2016 or have an advanced approval permit may participate in the tender. Further requirements concern the location of offshore wind parks within the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
The second tender for offshore wind turbines will take place on 1st April 2018. The tender volume will then also be 1550MWs. The total volume of the tender therefore amounts to 3,100 megawatts, of which at least 500MWs will be built in the Baltic Sea.
The bids must be submitted in writing to the Federal Network Agency in Bonn by 3rd April.
