Vattenfall halts coastal farms in Denmark

The utility has asked authorities to delay the commissioning of much-discussed offshore wind farms Vesterhav Syd and Nord until 2023.

The two coastal offshore farms Vesterhav Syd and Nord have been postponed by three years. The two projects totaling 350 MW were set to be commissioned in late-2020, but the company has now requested the project be postponed, informs the project's owner Vattenfall.
