The Danish Energy Agency is today publishing the draft procurement material for the upcoming procurement of 6 GW and 3 GW of offshore wind at Energy Island Bornholm, with the option to overplant. The procurement material is subject to a market dialogue with the relevant market players, which will take place over the coming months.
The draft procurement material is the implementation of the political supplementary agreement, which was adopted on May 30, 2023, and outlines the framework for the development of the minimum 9 GW offshore wind before the end of 2030.
The market dialogue is in collaboration with Energinet
The market dialogue is held in collaboration with Energinet (the Danish TSO) and will be conducted in a written format, where potential tenderers and economic operators are given the opportunity to contribute directly with input and proposals for the preliminary procurement material.
Be aware that there might be a delay in publication of the notice in Tenders Electronic Daily (supplement to the Official Journal of the EU), hence the links to the draft of the procurement material might be unavailable until the notice is published in Tenders Electronic Daily. It can take up to 48 hours.
The Danish Energy Agency welcomes written comments before the end of August 2023. All communication with the participants in the market dialogue will take place through EU-Supply, which is continuously updated with new information. It is possible to submit comments and attach documents in the message module in EU-Supply.
As part of the market dialogue, The Danish Energy Agency will, together with Energinet facilitate two technical workshops on requirements regarding the grid connection in case of overplanting. These workshops will take place in Copenhagen on August 29, 2023 for the 6 GW (radial parks) and on September 6, 2023 for the Energy Island Bornholm. Further information and registration for the workshops is published on EU-Supply at the beginning of August 2023.
