Ørsted enters into agreement on green power for groundbreaking hydrogen project

02 Jun 2021

Ørsted and HOFOR (Greater Copenhagen Utility) have entered into an agreement that will secure green power for part of the potential 1.3GW Green Fuels for Denmark project to produce sustainable fuels in the Greater Copenhagen area.

As part of the agreement, Ørsted and HOFOR will work towards enabling Ørsted to offtake the power produced at Aflandshage, which is HOFOR’s 250MW offshore wind farm project in the Oresund Strait. At the same time, it has been agreed that HOFOR may place the offshore wind farm’s substation at Avedøre power station.

Together, Ørsted and HOFOR will seek to realise both technical and trading-related synergies between the two projects. The future co-operation and the design of the link between the wind farm and the PtX plant is subject to all regulatory as well as grid connection matters falling into place.

Provided that a framework is established in Denmark promoting the development of sustainable fuels, the power from Aflandshage could enable parts of Green Fuels for Denmark’s second phase of 250MW and meet the power demand for the project’s first phase.
