When fully operational, the farm will have an annual production capacity of 604 MW, enough to fulfill the yearly electricity usage of about 600,000 Danish households. Kriegers Flak will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm to date, increasing Danish wind generation by almost 16%.

The first turbine was installed in February 2021 and, since then, installation of the remaining Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines, has continued smoothly. The turbines were preassembled and shipped out of the Port of Roenne on the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm during the installation phase.
