Thor offshore wind farm

The next big offshore wind farm to be tendered out in Denmark is Thor, which is to be located in the North Sea west of Nissum Fjord, at a distance of min. 20 km from the shore. The new wind farm is named “Thor” after Thorsminde, the nearest village on the shore. The wind farm will have a capacity of min. 800 MW and max. 1.000 MW, and will be connected to the grid between year 2025 and 2027. The Danish Energy Agency will conclude the tendering process with final bids in Q4 2021.

Thor offshore wind farm is the first of three large offshore wind farms to be build in Denmark before 2030. This has been decided in the Energy Agreement from June 2018, which all political parties stood behind.
