Vattenfall has taken the final investment decision for Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord adding 344 MW of fossil free electricity capacity to the Danish energy system towards 2023. With the final investment decision at a value of 769 MEUR Vattenfall and its suppliers will initiate the last stage of the development of the two offshore wind farms Vesterhav Syd and Nord. After recently having inaugurated Kriegers Flak and Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farms, the Vesterhav projects mark the third major project in a row for Vattenfall in Denmark. The wind farms will be ready to provide fossil free electricity to Danish consumers and industry by the end of 2023 at the latest. With a combined capacity of 344 MW equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 350,000 Danish households Vesterhav Syd and Nord represent a significant contribution to the green transition in Denmark in the coming years. The projects are the only state-tendered offshore wind farms to be constructed in Denmark between today and the commissioning of Thor Offshore Wind Farm in 2027.
