Danish Biggest Offshore Wind Farm Set for Official Launch
His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Denmark is set to inaugurate Vattenfall’s Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm on 22 August.
The wind farm will be officially launched with a reception at the Port of Hvide Sande, which will be used as an O&M base for the project’s 49 MHI Vestas V164-8.3MW turbines from 2024.
“The opening of Horns Rev 3 is proof of our commitment to enabling a fossil-free living within one generation. We look forward to and are proud that His Royal Highness the Crown Prince will attend and start up the wind farm,” said Magnus Hall, CEO of Vattenfall.
Once commissioned, Horns Rev 3 will become the biggest offshore wind farm in Danish waters and the first to use an 8MW turbine model.
The 406.7MW offshore wind farm delivered first power in December last year. One month later, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Brave Tern completed the installation of the project’s turbines.
