Largest Offshore Wind Farm to Go Online

Largest Offshore Wind Farm to Go Online

The world’s largest offshore wind farm is expected to go into operation on Thursday at a site 30 kilometers off the coast of Denmark.

The farm, called Horns Rev 2 and built by a Danish utility, Dong Energy, consists of 91 turbines made by Siemens, a German engineering company, spread over a 35-square kilometer area.

The farm is projected to generate 209 megawatts or enough electricity to supply 200,000 households for a year.

Anders Eldrup, the chief executive of Dong Energy, told Green Inc. in a telephone interview on Tuesday that the project was “historic.” He said that the offshore farm “will be for some time the biggest in the world.”
