Denmark، which is regarded as one of the world's leading producers of wind energy، is together with Germany and the Netherlands cooking up an ambitious plan of building an artificial island in the North Sea and turn it into an enormous wind farm، capable of providing millions of Europeans with green energy, Sputnik reported.
The future island، which will be about six square kilometers in size and include a harbor and a landing strip for aircraft، will be located on Dogger Bank، which is a large windy bank situated on a North Sea shoal about 100 kilometers off the United Kingdom's east coast، Danish trade newspaper Ingeniøren reported.
According to preliminary expectations، the yet unnamed island may host up to 7،000 wind turbines and provide energy to up to 80 million Europeans، which is about the population of Germany، the largest participant in terms of population size. National energy companies from the three nations involved are expected to sign an agreement to look further into collaboration opportunities on March 23.
