Hvide Sande to Become Service Hub for Danish Horns Rev 3 Offshore Wind Farm

Project developer Vattenfall has chosen Hvide Sande on the west coast of Jutland as the location for the service hub for Horns Rev 3. Operation and maintenance of the planned 49 wind turbines will be controlled from there in the future.

Horns Rev 3 is a mammoth project: Once completed, the offshore wind farm will be Denmark's largest offshore park and will increase the country's electricity generation from wind by around 12 percent. While the wind farm itself is located between 25-40 kilometres off the Danish west coast in the North Sea, the operation and maintenance of the 49 turbines will in future be coordinated from Hvide Sande, as project developer Vattenfall has now announced.

“This is a testimony to the local benefits of offshore wind and the engagement in the sector of the Port of Hvide Sande. It’s a commitment by Vattenfall to contribute to local development and shows that investing in a fossil-free future is something communities can base a living on”, says Michael Simmelsgaard, Managing Director for Vattenfall in Denmark and Head of Offshore Wind.

Once the turbines have been installed, service ships with service technicians and equipment will depart daily from Hvide Sande to the North Sea wind farm. “We expect to employ 25-30 full-time staff working out of Hvide Sande and establish a Vattenfall facility at the port. On top of this, we and our partners will need local suppliers. We will be looking for a range of services from engineering support of our equipment and vessels to cleaning and building maintenance”, says Director of Operation and Maintenance Offshore, Erik Hiensch.

The operation and maintenance of Hvide Sande is scheduled to start in 2024. Until then, investigations will be carried out to determine the exact facilities required in the port.
