September Debut for Scandinavia’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm
Vattenfall will inaugurate the 604 MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm on 6 September at Geocenter Møns Klint, Denmark.
Kriegers Flak is Denmark’s and Scandinavia’s largest offshore wind farm.
It increases Danish electricity production from wind turbines by about 16 per cent and will cover the annual electricity consumption of approximately 600,000 Danish households, Vattenfall said.
The wind farm comprises 72 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW offshore wind turbines installed in the Baltic Sea some 15-40 kilometres off the Danish coast.
Kriegers Flak will be officially inaugurated by His Royal Highness the Danish Crown Prince and the Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Simon Kollerup.
“We are very proud of the contribution that Kriegers Flak brings to the wind energy production in Denmark and to the green transition. After a successful construction process, Kriegers Flak is now ready to provide green power to Danish homes and industry, and we look forward to His Royal Highness and the Minister coming to mark this great occasion with us,” said Anna Borg, CEO of Vattenfall.
