Wind energy – Kriegers Flak
His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Denmark, together with Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, Simon Kollerup, has inaugurated Vattenfall’s new offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak.
The wind farm is Scandinavia’s largest and will increase Danish wind power production by 16 per cent.
With 72 offshore wind turbines and a capacity corresponding to the annual energy consumption of approximately 600,000 Danish households, Kriegers Flak is Denmark’s and Scandinavia’s largest offshore wind farm.
“With today’s inauguration, we are taking one step closer towards our goal of enabling fossil-free living within one generation. Kriegers Flak stands as a strong contribution to the green transition, which is why we are proud that the wind farm is now ready to provide fossil-free power to Danish homes and industry,” says Anna Borg, CEO of Vattenfall.
The new offshore wind farm is located in the Baltic Sea, 15-40 kilometres off the coast of Denmark and is Vattenfall’s newest and to date largest offshore wind farm in operation.
