Dutch Firm Plans World’s Biggest Wind Farm on Artificial Island
The answer is blowing in the wind. Turbine farms need plenty of space, and land-based and near-shore locations are filling up. Now TenneT, the company that operates the Netherlands’ electric grid, is planning to build the world’s largest wind farm on an artificial island in the North Sea, 60 miles off England’s coast. The farm’s thousands of turbines, which could feed electricity to five countries, are forecast to provide twice Europe’s current total offshore wind power by the time the power plant’s fully operational in 2027.
