The Danish Government published the lowest bid in the Kriegers Flak tendering procedure today. The lowest bid came from Vattenfall Vindkraft A/S, who will establish 600 MW in the Baltic Sea at a tender price of 37.2 øre/kWh. This is an extremely low tender price – the world’s lowest ever for offshore wind turbines. The final decision on the tendering procedure will be clarified once Treaty-compatible financing has been found under the current Public Service Obligation (PSO) negotiations.

Vattenfall has this week provided further evidence the cost of offshore wind power is falling fast, confirming it has won the tender to build a 600MW Danish project with a bid of €49.9/MWh. The Kriegers Flak project in the Baltic Sea is expected to deliver enough power for 600,000 Danish households and is on track to become one of the lowest cost offshore wind farms in the world. The move also underlines the steep reductions in offshore wind costs the industry has delivered in recent years. The sector has previously routinely delivered projects at costs well in excess of £100/MWh, but the most recent wave of projects has seen significant costs reductions.
