Pioneer Wind Farm Retiring
Twenty-five years ago, the world’s first offshore wind farm was constructed close to shore in the low waters off Vindeby near Lolland in the southeast of Denmark. Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm, comprising 11 offshore wind turbines, was connected to the grid in 1991.
DONG Energy, owner and operator of the wind farm, has decided to decommission it, and dismantling has begun.
The turbines are small compared to the latest tech, but the wind farm remains an industry pioneer.
