Construction Starts On Horns Rev 3, Denmark’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Construction is commencing on Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm, the 406 MW Horns Rev 3. Vattenfall won the contract for its construction in 2015 and is installing the first of a total of 49 foundations in the North Sea. It is the first time in five years that an offshore wind farm will be built in Denmark and when Horns Rev 3 is complete, it will provide enough power to satisfy the annual electricity consumption of 425,000 Danish households. The 8.3 MW turbines are 187 metres high and have a rotor diameter of 164 metres. They are manufactured by MHI Vestas and are today one of the world’s most powerful wind turbines.

Technology, Lower Costs Drive Offshore Wind Boom Towards Growth Of 650% By 2030

Offshore wind power could grow more than 650% by 2030, according to a new analysis from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). “It’s poised to become a leading power generation technology in a decarbonised global economy,” said Adnan Z. Amin, Director-General of IRENA, this week, at the World Wind Energy Conference. “Now that onshore wind power is cost-competitive with conventional power generation technologies, more attention is shifting to offshore applications, characterised by high technical power generation potential”.
