Danish Hvide Sande becomes Vattenfall wind service port


DenmarkVattenfall has chosen Hvide Sande Harbour as service hub for its Danish offshore wind operations.

The harbour will be a service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms. It will benefit from this deal with the creation of about 50 jobs.

Three wind farms

The choice of Hvide Sande as the service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms means that three offshore wind farms will be serviced from the Port of Hvide Sande. In 2019, it was selected as Vattenfall’s service port for the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm.

As a result, once Vesterhav Syd and Nord come on-line, the Port of Hvide Sande will service a total of 90 offshore wind turbines and a fossil-free electricity production matching the consumption of approx. 800,000 Danish homes.

New space at the port

Vattenfall will design and develop new facilities at the port for operating offices and warehousing, and it is expected that the new hub will make a positive contribution to the town in many ways.

On 14 December 2020, the Danish Energy Agency approved the construction plans for Vesterhav Syd and Nord.
