The Dutch tender for Borssele 1 2 in June 2016 came in at EUR 72 per MWh, followed by a Danish nearshore tender in September, at EUR 64 per MW; in November, another Danish tender, at Kriegers Flak, saw a winning bid of EUR.9.
71 All successful bids were awarded to projects to be sited in Denmark, due to differing conditions between the two countries (e.g., site restrictions in Germany but not Denmark).
