On 19 May, the installation vessel Sea Power erected the last of the 111 turbines at Anholt Offshore Wind Farm. Now, ahead awaits the job of having all of them delivering electricity to the Danish grid. More than 75 wind turbines are already in operation. This corresponds to a total capacity of 270 MW, and already at this point, Anholt is the largest offshore wind farm in Denmark.

The erection of the last turbine marks the end of eight and a half months of intense offshore turbine installation, which due to a tight schedule has happened over the winter when the weather has posed great challenges. “Beforehand, we knew that this would be a challenging task. Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is built in an area with very difficult seabed conditions and under a very tight schedule, and despite this, we’ve managed to keep the project on time and budget”, said Flemming Thomsen, Project Director of Anholt Offshore Wind Farm. “Although the wind turbine installation is complete, there will still be hectic activity over the summer. We still need to get the last 36 wind turbines in operation, but I’m sure we’ll get the wind farm ready for the official opening on 4 September”.

Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is owned by Dong Energy (50 %), PensionDanmark (30 %) and PKA (20 %) with which more than 800.000 Danes are shareholders in the wind farm.
