European Power has told Danish energy authorities of its intentions to begin the next phase regarding two nearshore wind power projects in Denmark known as Omø Syd og Jammerland Bugt.
The news comes almost three months after the Danish Energy Agency greenlit the preliminary impact assessments of both projects. European Energy is now moving into the development phase and initiating technical seabed inspections at the project sites.
“I am very pleased that after eight years, we can finally make the step from the applications phase and into the development phase with our two nearshore wind power parks Omø Syd and Jammerland Bugt. At European Energy, we go to work every day to move the green transition forward. We look forward to seeing our nearshore wind power parks supply more than 500.000 Danish households with green energy and reduce CO2-emissions by 750.000 tons every year. We see this as a considerable and central contribution to the Danish government’s efforts to see CO2-emissions reduced by 70 percent in 2030.“Knud Erik Andersen, CEO of European Energy.
The first steps of the development phase follow with the preliminary seabed inspections at the project sites in the coming weeks.
“We are initiating the preliminary technical surveys of the seabed at the project sites that will help us decide on the final project design for both nearshore wind power parks.”Knud Erik Andersen, CEO of European Energy.
European Energy began implementing projects in 2012 under the so-called “open door process”, with projects planned to link to the grid by 2023 and provide renewable energy to over 500,000 Danish households.
