The offshore wind turbine is scheduled for installation in 2013 at the demonstration site, where DONG Energy has permission to install a total of 6 demonstration turbines.

”Demonstration activities are an important part of maintaining and developing DONG Energy’s position as a market leader in offshore wind power," says Anders Eldrup, CEO of DONG Energy. "New and more efficient turbines are a crucial part of the efforts to reduce the construction costs for offshore wind farms.”
