A consortium comprising Denmark's Dong Energy and Germany's energy giant Eon has been awarded a licence by the Danish Energy Authority to build a 200 MW offshore wind turbine park off the coast of Nysted in Denmark. The investments in the project are estimated to be around DKK 2 bn (USD 340 m), of which Dong Energy is putting in 80% and Eon 20%, based on the two players respective shareholdings in the consortium.

Two other consortia were in the bidding for building the wind turbine park, the Swedish energy giant Vattenfall together with seven small Danish wind power companies, and a Dutch consortium comprising Ballast Nedam Infra B.V and Evelop. The Danish Energy Authority says Dong Energy and Eon gave the lowest and thus most attractive offer per kilowatt hour of produced electricity.

Kim Ernst, director of Dong Energy says he looks forward to starting the project and to expanding the company's position as an international player in establishing and operating offshore wind turbine parks.

The wind turbine park will cover an area of 35 km2 and is scheduled to be ready for commissioning by 2010. It will be placed west/south west of the existing Nysted Offshore Wind Turbine Park, and will be able to provide electricity to 200,000 Danish households, corresponding to 2% of total Danish electricity consumption. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.
