Vattenfall has chosen Hvide Sande Harbour as its service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms. Hvide Sande will to be the service hub for Vattenfall’s Danish offshore wind operations in the northern part of the North Sea and benefit from the creation of about 50 jobs. The choice of Hvide Sande as the service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms means that three offshore wind farms will be serviced from the Port of Hvide Sande. In 2019, Hvide Sande was selected as Vattenfall’s service port for the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm. As a result, once Vesterhav Syd and Nord come on-line, the Port of Hvide Sande will service a total of 90 offshore wind turbines and a fossil-free electricity production matching the consumption of approx. 800,000 Danish homes.
This choice represents a milestone in the development of Vesterhav Syd and Nord offshore wind farms. Vattenfall will design and develop new facilities at the port for operating offices and warehousing, and it is expected that the new hub will make a positive contribution to the town in many ways.
