Bornholm Energy Island: Ramboll to Plan Underwater Cable Routes

Net Operator Energinet has awarded Ramboll a contract to map and recommend possible submerged cable routes and landing locations for the export of power from the future energy island near Bornholm, to Denmark and an adjacent country.

Global engineering, architecture and consultancy company Ramboll has been awarded one of the first pilot climate and seabed studies for the coming energy islands in Denmark. The existing island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea will be linked to offshore wind farms that together can provide 5 GW and cover the electricity for nearly 5 million households in Denmark and nearby countries.

”The project is of major strategic importance since the result will help form the basis for decisions about import and export of energy from the new energy island, as well as how renewable energy from the islands will interconnect the countries. This will be vital when all Europeans need green energy,” says Mikkel Benthien Kristensen, Global Division Director for Environmental Impact Assessments at Ramboll.

The energy islands represent a whole new era for renewable energy and will make Denmark the frontrunner within advanced utilisation of offshore wind. These projects are crucial for Denmark, be-cause the green energy from the energy islands can meet the growing electricity consumption in a climate-friendly Danish society, but also for Europe in general, when the green power is exported and thus contributes to the European green transition.

This work creates the groundwork for subsequent investigations and approval of the project. The next step in the project for the energy island Bornholm will be to carry out the environmental feasibility studies to ensure that the energy island has as few negative consequences as possible for the marine environment and surrounding nature.
