12 Conditions for prequalification DEA will conduct a prequalification of potential tenderersRequirements for financial and technical capacityOnly prequalified tenderer will be entitled to submit a tenderRequirements adapted to the company set-up of the individual applicants
13 Requirements for financial capacity Expected projectsum may amount to no more than 25 % of the tenderer’s business (or parent company)Equity-ratio requirement of 20 %Credit rating of BBB- with ”Standard & Poors”, ”Moody’s” or ”Poors”Submit general financial information on earnings for the past 3 years, equity capital, equity ratio and EBIT margin (all in the consortium)
14 Requirements for technical capacity Documenting experience in:project development and establishment of offshore wind farms or other large –scale offshore installationsoroperation of large offshore wind farms above a specific size, e.g. 100 MWQuestion: Any questions to the requirements under consideration for financial or technical capacity?
15 Compliance with tender Compliance penaltyBank guarantee placed as collateral for the penalty400 mill. for Horns Rev 3 and 600 mill. for Kriegers FlakBank (first of declaration of intention and later of guarantee) needs ratings with “Standard & Poors” of A-, with Moody’s” of A3 and with “Fitch” of A-.Guarantee released when spent 1 bn. in establishment of Horns Rev 3 or 1 ½ bn. on Kriegers FlakQuestion: Will the intended model on compliance penalty influence interest in tendering the wind farms? Will this affect the price offered?
16 Award criteria Lowest price is the only award criterion Open to include other criteria than price, ifthe criteria are reasonable and relevantcontribute to increased competitionwithout additional costs for the tendererQuestion: What criteria other than price could be relevant ?
17 Financial termsThe price supplement is the difference between the ”price pr. kWh bid” and the spot price for electricityThe supplement will be given for the first 20/30 TWhNo price supplement in hours with negative spot pricesCompensation for delayed grid connection and for limits on production.Questions:Is the supplement for 20/30 TWh the right level?Other comments?

22 Compliance with deadline for completing the wind farms The political energy agreement:The two wind farms are in full production from 1 January 2020.Questions:How can DEA ensure a fair and sufficient incentive to complete the farms before 2020?Will an economic incentive/sanction affect the interest in the tender?Will the incentive affect the price offered?
23 Capacity of the farmsA required minimum of 395/595 MW and a maximum of 405/605 MW for Horns Rev 3 and Kriegers Flak respectively.
25 Maximum area for construction Maximum area: 44 km2 per 200 MW is being considered.Question: Would a smaller area than 44 km2 per 200 MW be acceptable and if so, how small could the area be?
26 Concession for Kriegers Flak - one or two? Question: Should it be possible to split Kriegers Flak into two concessions?Kriegers Flak

33 Technical Project Description for both sites are published – and we would like your comments! Pre-investigations and EIA for:Horns Rev 3, Project manager: Betina Haugaard Heron, Energinet.dkKriegers Flak, Project manager: Pernille Skyt, Energinet.dkIn brief we will present the technical project description for Horns Rev 3 and Kriegers Flak – our main question to you is:Will the current draft technical project description ensure the flexibility necessary to select technical solutions for projects on Horns Rev 3 and Kriegers Flak?
34 Technical Projects Descriptions – the overall objectives The overall objectives of the published technical project descriptions are:Provide description of the main technical parts: wind turbines, park layouts, foundations design, inter-array cables and installation methods.Use this as the technical foundation for the environmental impact assessmentProvide a combination of a “most likely” and a “worst case” approachEnable the EIA to secure as high degree of flexibility as possible in order to allow the concession winner to design and built the most optimal offshore wind farm.
35 Horns Rev 3: Location of pre-investigation area App. 160 km2Has been reduced since February 2013The wind farm area will cover an area of app km2Flexibility for coming developer

40 Turbine foundations Three main types are included: Monopile GravitationJacketThe different types of foundations have different impacts concerning e.g.:Installation noiseSeabed preparationScour protection‘Footprint’Hydrodynamic impactsRisk of ship collisionAll of this will be covered in the EIA
41 Technical dialogue: Questions related to Geo Investigations (UXO, geophysical, geological, geotechnical issues)Note has been published summarizing the comments in anonymous form, including answers or responses to the input.In summary, the following suggestions have been included in the geotechnical survey program:More CPTs at both sitesPressure meter testsDynamic laboratory testsAcoustic Corer will not be part of the programExpected publishing dates:July 2013: Geophysical survey results31. December 2013: Geotechnical factual reports28. February 2014: Updated 3D geological models
42 Technical dialogue: Questions related to MetOcean Note has been published summarizing the comments in anonymous form, including answers or responses to the input. Additionally, methodology notes have been published.In summary:No met-masts will be established at the two sitesThe level for MetOcean studies at the two sites will be identical, with natural differences as existing data from the two areas varies.Some developers hold more detailed knowledge on MetOcean data than others in the two areas. DEA and Energinet.dk will make efforts to equalize the advantage potential developers may have compared to others.Estimations on productivity will not be part of the MetOcean studies.Certification of the conducted MetOcean studies, or a verification of a third party is sought.Notes describing the methodology for the MetOcean studies are published; please comment!Metocean studies will be completed as planned, late 2013.
43 Road map of the technical dialog 2013 May 13: Kick-off conference.May 27 – 30: Invitation to participate in bilateral meetings.May 31: Deadline for written contributions regarding Metocean.June 7: Deadline for written contributions.Go to in order to read more about the tenders and to subscribe to the newsletter.
44 Summary pointThe Danish Energy Agency is open to hearing all relevant proposals and input to ensure that the tendering procedures reflect current market conditions.These may be proposals for contract terms, etc. which may be able to reduce or increase the price, or enhance knowledge about market conditions of significance to the price in the tendering period.
