RWE signs agreement to build Thor offshore wind farm

9 February 2022

On 25 January RWE has signed a concession agreement with the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) which grants the right to construct and operate the Thor offshore wind farm for 30 years. With a planned capacity of around 1000 MW Thor will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm to date. It will be built off the Danish west coast and is scheduled to reach full operation in 2027. 

“Scandinavia, and Denmark in particular, are important strategic growth markets for us. Denmark not only has very favourable wind conditions, the country also has ambitions to deploy even more offshore wind power … and in the upcoming months we will be starting our preliminary surveys” said Pål Coldevin, executive VP for Offshore Development Nordics, Poland and Baltics at RWE Renewables.

The Thor project will help support RWE’s goal of tripling its global offshore wind capacity from 2.4 to 8 GW by 2030. RWE is already involved in Danish offshore wind – it has a 20% share in the 207 MW Rødsand 2 offshore wind farm, which is located south of the Danish island of Lolland, 10 km southeast of Rødbyhavn. The wind farm has been in operation since 2010.
