Hanstholm Port in wind turbine agreement
Hanstholm Harbour has established an agreement with the company GPP Vind K/S to set up three wind turbines in the port area. The turbines will replace four existing ones, but will have an overall greater capacity. The agreement is a milestone towards the expansion of the port, which will occur over the next three years.
"With the expansion of the port, we'll get a number of new opportunities in Hanstholm to further develop and significantly strengthen our business areas, and therefore it is good news that the agreement with GPP Vind has fallen into place so that we can start looking ahead in this area," said port Director Niels Clemensen.
The three turbines will replace four existing wind turbines in the field by the Roshage pier. The new turbines have not yet been ordered, but are expected to have a capacity of 3.45 MW each. Thus, the three turbines can produce three times as much power as the current four.
The new wind turbines is an essential element in the business base to ensure the expansion of the Hanstholm Harbour, a project worth approximately half a billion kroner. In Januray, the project was sent out as a discussion paper for public consultation as part of the treatment process towards the final EIA approval.
