  • DONG Energy awarded three German offshore wind projects 04/18/2017
    ... under construction at Borkum Riffgrund 2, which is expected to be commissioned in 2019. In total, DONG Energy operates 3,600MW offshore wind capacity across Germany, UK and Denmark and has a further 3,800MW under construction. Cost-drivers enabling the zero subsidy bid Platform change: Significantly bigger turbines – probably 13-15MW – will be on the market by 2024. With bigger turbines, the developer can increase electricity production while at the same time reduce the number of turbine positions. This contributes significantly to cost reductions during construction (fewer towers and array cables, and lower costs for installation vessels and manpower) as well as during a lifetime of operations and maintenance. Scale: OWP West and Borkum Riffgrund West 2 will be combined into one large-scale project with the option of adding additional volume in next year’s auction to further increase the total size of the project. Location: The projects benefit from average wind speeds of more than 10 m/s, which is among the highest wind speeds measured across DONG Energy’s portfolio of wind farms. Also, the projects are located next to DONG Energy’s Borkum Riffgrund 1&2 which means that operations and maintenance can be done from DONG Energy’s existing O&M hub in Norddeich. Extended lifetime: The German authorities have approved the possibility to extend the operational lifetime of the asset from 25 to 30 years. Not full scope: Developers were not bidding for the grid connection in the German auction, which means that grid connection is not included in the bid price. The above drivers deliver a cost-of-electricity below our forecasted wholesale power price and will allow us to create value and meet our return requirements at the expected market prices without subsidies. Compared to German power price forecasts available from leading research firms, we consider our price forecast to be relatively conservative. We have applied a higher cost-of-capital than in previous projects to reflect the potential increase in market price exposure. The cost reductions required for a German project without subsidies are fully feasible, both technically and commercially. Towards a final investment decision in 2021, DONG Energy will monitor the key factors which will determine long-term power prices in Germany. These factors include the impact of EU actions to reinvigorate the European carbon trading scheme; the phase-out of conventional and nuclear capacity; the future role of coal in Europe; and the build-out of onshore transmission grids ...

Con4Mare, DONG Energy, Borkum Riffgrund2, Marine Warranty Survey Service, offshore The site is located approximately 17km East of the border between Germany and the Netherlands, approximately 34km North of the island of Borkum and approximately 50km North-West of the German mainland. The Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm consists of 56 Foundations in total which are splitted in 20 Suction Bucket Jackets (SBJ) and 36 Monopiles (MP) and their corresponding Transition Pieces (TP).   MHI Vestas Offshore will supply the 56 WTG’s of the type V164-8.0 MW, resulting in a total wind farm capacity of 450 MW. One inner park offshore substation will collect the electrical energy from the wind farm for the transmission to a not yet defined HVDC transformer platform which transforms it to a higher voltage level ensuring a low-loss transmission to shore. Con4Mare’s scope of work with regards to the MWS Service will include the MP/TP and WTG load out, transport and installation operation. ...
