On 2 March, Energinet.dk tied up the foundation and steel structure, and the top site is now ready to be placed on a barge in Aalborg.
The top section is expected to be lifted into place around Easter, and it does not only contain Energinet.dk’s transformers but also DONG Energy surveillance equipment for the wind farm.
Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is an approved Danish offshore wind power wind farm in the Kattegat, between Djursland and Anholt island. With a nameplate capacity of 400 megawatts (MW), when built, it will be the largest offshore wind farm in Denmark. A cable from the wind farm to Anholt will permit the replacement of most of the current diesel-powered electricity on the island.
