Plans for up to 400 MW of new turbines as part of repowering

The Danish environment ministry plans to announce locations for 300-400 MW of new land-based wind turbines this month. As part of the revived incentives program for the replacement of old wind plant that went into effect January 1, up to 900 older machines -- 450 kW or less in size -- will be replaced by newer models. In addition to the variable market price of electricity plus a premium of DKK 0.10/kWh, owners of the new turbines will receive an extra DKK 0.12/kWh for the first 12,000 full load hours. The program is the result of a co-ordinated effort between the ministry of environment, the ministry of economic and business affairs and the country's 13 counties.
