Denmark's climate and energy minister Connie Hedegaard has given the go-ahead for state owned company Energinet.dk to start work on Denmark's so-far biggest offshore wind farm, reports the Danish Energy Authority on its website.
 
"With the new offshore wind farm Denmark is signalling clearly that it is among the world's leading nations in wind energy," said the minister.
 
The new wind farm forms part of the latest energy policy which received parliamentary approval earlier this year. When complete in 2012, it will have an output of 400 MW – enough to cover the electricity demand of 400,000 Danish households.
 
In 2007, wind turbines accounted for 19.7% of electricity production in Denmark. When the new wind farm comes on stream, that figure will be increased by approximately 4%.
 
Meanwhile two other offshore wind farms are under construction in Danish waters, one scheduled for completion in 2009 and the other in 2010. Both will have an estimated output of 200 MW.
