December 16, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] All 80 Vestas wind turbines in Elsam’s new offshore wind farm at Horns Rev have now been put into operation. In the future the wind farm will produce approximately 2 percent of the Danish power consumption. The 80 wind turbines are placed in the North Sea 14-20 km off the coast. After commissioning, the turbines must undergo an acceptance test, testing the functionality of the wind turbines separately and in groups before the wind turbines are finally taken over by Elsam’s and put into commercial operation. The wind farm is capable of producing 160 MW at full operation, and annually the wind farm is expected to produce approximately 600,000,000 kWh.
