Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm to boost Danish wind production by 12%

The Danish Crown Prince, Prime Minister and Climate, Energy & Utilities Minister have inaugurated the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm. Horns Rev is in the North Sea, 25-40 km off the west coast of Jutland. Vattenfall is the developer, operator and owner.

The 407 MW wind farmDenmark’s largest – will boost Danish wind energy production by 12%. This will provide enough power to cover the consumption of the equivalent of around 425,000 Danish households.

It uses the world’s most powerful wind turbine platform: the 8.3 MW MHI Vestas V164 model.

Vattenfall won with a bid worth DKK 770/MWh (€103/MWh). The Danish Government is paying Vattenfall the difference between this and the electricity price for the first 12 years of the project. That makes Horns Rev 3 one of the cheapest operational offshore wind farms in Europe.

WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson said: “Denmark is already a leader in wind energy. It gets more of its electricity from wind than any other country in Europe: 41% last year. This new wind farm will increase Danish wind energy production by 12%. And it’s an important step to Denmark realising its goal of 100% renewable electricity by 2030”.
