DONG Energy submitted six projects in the bid and won with the 240MW OWP West, the 240MW Borkum Riffgrund West 2, and the 110MW Gode Wind 3.

For OWP West and Borkum Riffgrund West 2 DONG made bids at zero EUR per MWh, i.e. these projects will not receive a subsidy on top of the wholesale electricity price. The Gode Wind 3 project was awarded based on a bid price of EUR 60 per MWh.

The three projects are planned to be commissioned in 2024, subject to Final Investment Decision by DONG Energy in 2021.
