Denmark Receives Power from Anholt Offshore Wind Farm

Monday, September 24, 2012

The first CO2-free power is now being fed into the Danish power grid from Anholt offshore wind farm.

On its completion next year, the farm, with its total capacity of 400 MW, will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm and will deliver power equivalent to the consumption of 400,000 Danish households.

The turbine supplier is Siemens Wind Power.

“We are on schedule and are therefore already now able to deliver the first green power to the Danes. Efficient project management is one of the reasons for our leadership position in the market for offshore wind energy. Wind power is at the very core of DONG Energy’s strategy and I am delighted that by achieving first power today we are providing a sound contribution towards maintaining Denmark’s leadership position in offshore wind,” says Christina Grumstrup Sørensen, Senior Vice President in DONG Energy Wind Power.

On 28 March 2011, PensionDanmark and PKA acquired a total of 50 per cent of Anholt offshore wind farm, making approx. 840,000 Danes co-owners of the offshore wind farm.

“As the return to our members is tied in with the generation of power, this is indeed a happy day. Since we put our signature to the agreement everything has been proceeding to plan and been managed professionally with DONG Energy as the operator of a strong industry of Danish subcontractors. Both the partnership and the offshore wind farm are model examples of Danish positions of strength,” says Torben Möger Pedersen, CEO of PensionDanmark.  

 

Fast Facts

The wind turbines at Anholt Offshore Wind Farm each have a capacity of 3.6MW. When the wind farm with a total capacity of 400MW is completed, it will be able to supply electricity corresponding to the annual consumption of approx 400,000 households.
Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is expected to supply its first electricity in late September, and at the end of 2012 we expect that 30 wind turbines will be erected. The wind farm will be completed in 2013.
