Publication of results from the preliminary site investigations – Artificial island North Sea

In relation to the tendering of the artificial island of the Energy Island North Sea, a range of preliminary investigations and environmental assessments are being carried out.

Results in the form of reports and data from the completed investigations can be accessed directly here at this site (reports) and through access to a FTP site (data), which is maintained by Energinet. All results from the preliminary investigations etc. are targeted potential bidders for the artificial island of the Energy Island North Sea.

If you want to be notified when new data or reports are being published, please send an email to the following address specifying the email address you wish to register: energyislands@ens.dk.

Access to Energinet's FTP site

Access to Energinet’s FTP site can be obtained in the following way:

Step 1: Interested bidders can request access to the data by notifying the Danish Energy Agency. Send the request to Sofie Bille Bruun, email sbbn@ens.dk , and include the following information:

Applicant name (company name or name of the consortium)

Applicant’s contact person, (name)

Applicant’s contact person, (email)

Applicant’s contact person, (telephone number)

Step 2: Energinet will thus send instructions to the applicant on access to the FTP server with username and password.

The FTP website will be updated in accordance with the plan mentioned in the table below. Reports, which are related to the environment and other reports, which do not require FTP server, will be posted on this page.

We aim to process requests within five working days, bank holidays and holiday excluded.
