Danish renewables developer European Energy has received the green light to proceed with the plan to install 560 MW of offshore wind power capacity in Danish waters.
The company on Monday said that the environmental impact assessments (EIS) for the Omø South and Jammerland Bay projects had been approved. This means that European Energy can now move to the development phase of the projects.
The company started working on the projects in 2012 through the so-called open door procedure, as opposed to government tender procedure.
The construction phase will create 3,000 to 5,000 jobs, while the fully operating wind farms will require 60-80 permanent positions, European Energy said.
Omø South and Jammerland Bay are expected to commence operations in 2023.
