Thor

Offshore Wind Farm


Thor offshore wind farm is the first of three offshore wind farms decided as a part of the 2018 Energy Agreement. Thor will be the hitherto largest offshore wind farm in Denmark and will be established a minimum of 22 kilometers off the coast of Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland. The wind farm was put up for tender with a flexibility of 800-1000 MW, and a new aspect is that grid connection from the wind farm and to the transmission grid is included in the tendering procedure. Thor will be able to supply electricity for around 1 million Danish households. Total investment costs for Thor have been estimated at around DKK 15.5 billion. Thor will be fully established and connected to the grid by no later than at the end of the 2027, and the authorization is for 30 years, with an option for a five-year extension.
