Wind Energy Power Plants in Denmark - offshore
Anholt
Location: Denmark
Operator: Dong Energy A/S
Configuration: 111 X 3.6-MW SWT-2.3-120
Operation: 2013
WTG supplier: Siemens
EPC: MT Hojgaard
Quick facts: This is Denmark's largest offshore wind park to date. The 88km² site is about 20km offshore between Djursland and Anholt Island in the Kattegat. Water is up to 19m deep. In Jun 20110, Dong got a concession for the DK 10bn scheme which guarantees a tariff of DK 1.05/kWh. Anholt is jointly invested by Dong (50%), PensionDanmark (30%) and PKA (20%). The last turbine was installed on 19 May 2012 and connected on 18 Jun 2013. The Anholt offshore wind power plant was officially inaugurated 4 Sep 2013. Siemens has a 5yr O&M contract for the plant.

Horns Rev-1
Location: Denmark
Operator: Dong Energy A/S
Configuration: 80  X 2 MW V80
Operation: 2002
WTG supplier: Vestas, ABB
Quick facts: Many contractors and suppliers were used for the Horns Rev plant including MTHS Entreprenør A/S (foundations), Nexans (cables), Siemens (switchgear and shunt reactor), Semco Maritime low-voltage and monitoring system), ABB (cables and switchgear), Alstom (transformer), and HBG (substation platform). The project cost about €270mn, of which grid interconnection amounted to €40mn. After repeated problems with the WTG's electrical gear, Vestas dismounted the nacelles and returned them to shore for overhauls. This process was completed in Dec 2004.

Horns Rev-2
Location: Denmark
Operator: Dong Energy A/S
Configuration: 91  X 2.3-MW SWT2.3/93
Operation: 2009
WTG supplier: Siemens
EPC: Energinet.dk, Aarsleff Bilfinger Berger Joint Venture (ABJV), Bladt Industries, Visser Smit Hanab/Global Marine, Nexans, Siemens, A2SEA, Semco Maritime, Esbjerg Havn
Quick facts: Horns Rev-2 is 30km off the west coast of Jutland in the North Sea in water depths of 9-17m. Construction began in May 2008 and the first turbine was installed on 19 Mar 2009. On 17 Sep 2009, the project was inaugurated by Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and became the largest offshore wind park in the world. With average wind speeds just below 10m/s, annual output is expected to be about 800 GWh. Horns Rev-2 is the first offshore wind farm to be manned year-round by up to 24 workers staging from an offshore maintenance and transformer platform dubbed Poseidon.
