Fine-screening of the Danish sea territory for the establishment of new offshore wind farms

On behalf of the DEA, COWI A/S has done a fine-screening of three areas located at the North Sea (near Ringkøbing), Hesselø and Kriegers Flak, for the establishment of new offshore wind farms.

The screening examines seabed and geological factors, electrical systems and grid connection, environmental impact and planning factors, wind resources, possible layouts and energy production as well as LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) for the three areas. The screening confirms that it is possible to build offshore wind farms in all three screened areas in relation to aspects concerning nature, environment and planning.
