His Royal Highness the Danish Crown Prince and the Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Simon Kollerup will inaugurate Scandinavia’s largest offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak in the Baltic Sea.

All 72 offshore wind turbines are in place to supply fossil-free power at Vattenfall’s newest and to date largest offshore wind farm, Kriegers Flak. The park has a production capacity of 604 MW, corresponding to the annual consumption of approximately 600,000 Danish households.

This makes Kriegers Flak Denmark’s and Scandinavia’s largest offshore wind farm and increases Danish electricity production from wind turbines by about 16%.

Kriegers Flak will be officially inaugurated by HRH the Crown Prince at a reception on September 6th at Geocenter Møns Klint, from where Kriegers Flak can be seen, located 15-40 kilometres off the coast.

“We are very proud of the contribution that Kriegers Flak brings to the wind energy production in Denmark and to the green transition. After a successful construction process, Kriegers Flak is now ready to provide green power to Danish homes and industry, and we look forward to His Royal Highness and the Minister coming to mark this great occasion with us,” says Anna Borg, CEO of Vattenfall.
