Denmark’s next step as a global leader in offshore wind
The VindØ consortium is proud to present their vision of the world’s first energy island
The consortium comprises two of Denmark’s largest pension funds, PensionDanmark and PFA, Denmark’s largest utility company, Andel, and one of Denmark’s largest financial service providers, Nykredit.
The artificial island is to be built in the Danish part of the North Sea, around 100 km from land. Here, optimal conditions exist for generating clean, green energy using wind turbines.
The island is to be established by 2030, at the latest, and connect 3 GW of offshore wind. Over time, the island will connect 10 GW offshore wind and host energy storage and Power-to-X as well as accommodation, O&M facilities, and HVDC converters for transmission and interconnectors.
The investors comprise two of Denmark’s largest pension funds, PensionDanmark and PFA, Denmark’s largest utility company, Andel.
Moreover, the investors have initiated cooperation with one of Denmark’s leading financial services groups, Nykredit, to evaluate the possibilities for a comprehensive Danish financing package for the future energy island in the North Sea.
The consortium is assisted by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, one of the world’s leading green infrastructure investment companies with significant experience from major offshore projects worldwide.
