Anholt offshore wind farm is now producing wind electricity
02 October 2012
The first wind turbine in Denmark's largest offshore wind farm has started to deliver green electricity, writes epn.dk.
The first wind power is now flowing from the Anholt offshore wind farm, which from next year will be Denmark's largest offshore wind farm.
When the installation is completed next year, its 111 wind turbines will supply electricity to approximately 400,000 Danish households, state the parties behind the wind farm.
- We are on schedule and are now ready to deliver the first green electricity to the Danes, says Christina Grumstrup Sørensen, senior vice president of the Wind Energy Division at Dong Energy.
Several Danish co-owners
In March last year, Pension Denmark and PKA bought half the wind park, and thereby made about 840,000 Danes co-owners of the wind turbines.
- As the return to our members is tied to the production of electricity, it is a day of joy, says Torben Pedersen Möger, CEO in PensionDenmark.
Investment Director Michael Nellemann Pedersen in PKA declares that PKA is proud to be a part of the Denmark’s largest clean energy source. He is also pleased that the project is contributing towards the creation of 8,000 jobs.
The 111 turbines in the project are each providing 3.6 megawatt, the total capacity of power hence reaches 400 megawatt.
The turbines are supplied by Siemens Wind Power, while the foundations for the turbines are produced by Bladt Industries in Aalborg. The construction company MT Højgaard has been responsible for the installation of the foundations.
