Groundbreaking for the onshore substation,
RWE broke ground for the onshore substation for Thor offshore wind farm. The onshore substation will be built in the municipality of Lemvig.
Siemens Energy will carry out the civil engineering and construction works together with MT Højgaard Danmark, one of Denmark’s leading companies for large-scale building and infrastructure projects.
The groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of one of the largest Danish contributions to the green transition. Thor will be the country’s largest offshore wind farm to date and will create many jobs and vocational training positions locally.
The ceremony took place in the presence of Steffen Damsgaard, Chairman of the Technology & Environment Committee of the Municipality of Lemvig, Troels Ranis, Senior Vice President of Confederation of Danish Industry, Kristian Jensen, CEO of Green Power Denmark, Peter Weinreich-Jensen, Director of Siemens Energy Denmark and Pia Lanken, Senior Advisor for RWE Renewables Denmark.
