German energy company RWE has selected Port of Thorsminde to execute operation and maintenance (O&M) works for its Thor offshore wind farm.

To support the arrangement, RWE has signed a letter of intent (LoI) with the Port of Thorsminde to use the port for a period of 30 years.

The German company noted that the port offers shortest sea as well as the fastest air routes to Thor offshore wind farm.

It is anticipated that the new service station will be operational from 2026.

In a statement RWE said: “RWE wants to use part of the port during the construction of the wind farm.

“It is expected that the project’s first survey works will be carried out from the port, smaller components will be shipped out and construction crews will be transported to their offshore workplace.

“As a result, RWE plans to establish its base at Thorsminde by Spring next year.”

Thor offshore wind farm of 1GW planned capacity will be built off the Danish west coast.

Located nearly 22km from the port of Thorsminde, the facility will have the capacity to generate clean energy for more than one million Danish households.

The wind farm is expected to be fully operational in 2027. The project is expected to create up to 60 permanent employment opportunities for technicians, engineers, nautical personnel as well as crew for the service vessels in the long run.

Last December, RWE secured a concession from the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) to develop the Thor offshore wind project.
