The Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is located in the Kattegat in the waters between Djursland and the island of Anholt in an area with fairly consistent water depths of about 15 to 19 metres.The Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is approx 20km long and up to 5km wide. The shortest distance to Djursland is approx 15km, while there are 20km to the island of Anholt.
According to the licence conditions, the actual offshore wind farm could not take up an area of more than 88km2 within the project site. The actual offshore wind farm area includes the wind turbines and array cables.
Construction works commenced at the turn of the year 2011/2012 and involved a number of special vessels and employees operating in and around the area. DONG Energy chose the Port of Grenaa as base for the project; both during the construction phase and also in connection with the on-going operation of the wind farm.
The offshore wind farm has been constructed according to well-known principles based on DONG Energy’s vast experience.
Siemens Wind Power, with production facilities in Brande and Aalborg, supplyed the wind turbines, MT Højgaard supplied foundations and Nexans produced the array cables connecting the turbines with the offshore transformerstation.
