Denmark's Big Wind Power Island Plans

Denmark's New Artificial Offshore Island to Harness Wind Energy Source:  Wind Turbines off Denmark Stock Image $30 Million Landmark Project of Wind Island Innovation Denmark is planning an unprecedented $30 million offshore wind island to pull in wind energy from offshore wind farms.  The island will be built as an artificial island of green energy innovation. The island will tie-in power from existing offshore wind farms.  This planned facility could have a total capacity of 10 gigawatts.  The price-tag for it is $30 million Wind Energy Suppling Denmark 10 gigawatts of energy would be enough to supply 10 million households in Europe. Denmark's population is 6 million. The catalyst behind this project is Denmark's ambitious green energy plans.  They've established rigorous regulations to meet tough climate change targets.  Their wind island is designed to harness blowing winds, power virtually all households in the nation and take them to a green

Wind Turbine Innovation

Denmark's Vestas Launches New Turbine in US Market Blowing in the Wind Vestas has launched a new wind turbine targeting the US market.  It's designed to simplify how turbines are built and cut costs for the renewable source of energy. 30% More Energy The turbine produced by the Copenhagen based company has a 138 meter rotor diameter, which is the industry's largest.  The company expects it will produce 30% more energy then previous models. Modular Design The new turbine is a modular design to enable more customized turbines to be produced without increasing the number of components.  The new V138 turbine can be sold globally but it's particularly well suited to the US where many locations have capacity restrictions on how many megawatts can be installed and fed into the local grid.  Vestas just announced the new V138 turbine today.
