The further into the future a large infrastructure facility is to operate, the more investment must be made. But the logic of the tenders on the Fehmarn connection is that cheaper always works better, because (low) price is weighted with 70 percent in the assessment of the tenders.
In the current TPS tender, the Danish state has saved a good eight percent by choosing the cheapest offer. On the other hand, it costs nine percent of the lifetime, and the cheaper solution also uses more power. Measured over the lifetime of the substation, the cheapest offer is therefore the most expensive. And that’s without even mentioning sustainability.
