Bidding results for 200 MW extension to Horns Reef 160 MW wind station

Danish power utility Energi E2 has been picked to build a 200 MW extension to the 160 MW Horns Rev wind station off the west coast of Denmark. The company won the government's competitive tender with a bid requesting the lowest subsidy for delivered electricity: DKK 0.518/kWh (EUR 0.07/kWh) for 50,000 full load hours -- or about 12 years of production -- according to Knud Pedersen at the Danish Energy Agency. The first two government-sponsored offshore wind demonstration projects, Horns Rev I and the Nysted 165 MW station, both receive DKK 0.453/kWh (EUR 0.06/kWh) for 42,000 full load hours. Energi E2 was in the final running with Elsam and DONG, two other Danish power utilities. All three companies have gone through a complicated ownership revamping recently with Swedish utility Vattenfall (Windpower Monthly, July 2005). Elsam built and owns Horns Rev I. This month, the energy agency plans to announce who is qualified to bid on a second 200 MW offshore demonstration project, an extension to Nysted. In the running are Energi E2 in cooperation with DONG and Swedish Sydkraft; Elsam; a Dutch consortium of Ballast Nedam and Evelop; and the Rødsand II consortium of seven small Danish developers, financiers and investors (Windpower Monthly, March 2005).
