COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark’s parliament on Monday approved the construction of a 400 megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbine park in the Kattegat arm of the North Sea between Jutland and the island of Anholt in 2012.
“The park will be the biggest offshore park in Denmark and provide electricity for about 400.000 homes,” the Danish climate and energy ministry said in a statement.
Denmark is home to Vestas, the world’s biggest supplier of wind turbines. With German competitor Siemens Wind Power they are the leading manufacturers of large offshore wind turbines.
“Requests for proposals for the construction of the offshore park will be announced as soon as possible,” the ministry said.
