Denmark’s energy regulator has approved a feasibility study for the up to 72MW Frederikshavn nearshore offshore wind farm in Denmark, proposed by renewables developer European Energy A/S.
The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) said on Tuesday that the feasibility study also includes the project’s environmental impact report. It noted, however, that the approval does not greenlight the construction of the wind farm and the developer will have to obtain an establishment permit as a next step.
The project’s environmental impact report will be open for an eight-week public consultation when a permit application is filed.
The Frederikshavn project calls for the installation of up to five turbines to create a power plant with a capacity ranging between 21.6 MW and 72 MW. The machines will have a hub height of 265 metres and will be sited within an area of roughly 5.5 sq km, located less than 5 km east of Frederikshavn Harbor.
