It applied to the Danish Energy Agency for the concession to build the offshore wind farm off the Danish island of Anholt in the Kattegat.

The total investment is expected to represent up to DKK10 billion (~€1.3bn).

“Building Anholt offshore wind farm will be an important milestone in the expansion of renewable energy production in Denmark,” says Anders Eldrup, CEO of DONG Energy.

Anholt offshore wind farm is expected to supply its first power in 2012 and to be finally completed in 2013. The wind farm will be able to supply 4% of Denmark's total power consumption.

The winner of the concession for Anholt offshore wind farm is expected to be announced on 19 April 2010.
