Siemens Financial Services and DEME Concessions Wind have joined German utility EnBW in its bid for the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in Denmark.
The wind farm is planned to be developed in Kriegers Flak, about 15km east of the Danish coast in the southern part of the Baltic Sea.
After completion, the project is anticipated to generate between 590MW and 610 MW of electricity.
EnBW’s project company Kriegers Flak was earlier prequalified by the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) to take part in the tender.
Siemens Financial Services and DEME Concessions Wind have now agreed to acquire 32.5% and 17.5% stakes, respectively, in the project company.
EnBW said an indicative offer by Kriegers Flak was submitted as part of the tender on 5 April.
Final binding offers should be submitted by 8 November and the winner is planned to be unveiled by the end of this year.
The Kriegers Flak project is backed by the European Union with €150m financing under the European Economic Recovery Programme.
Cable laying works of the project are expected to begin in autumn 2016 and the grid connection works are slated for completion by the end of 2018.
The project secured final investment approvals from the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Building in December 2014.
