Boat tour to an offshore wind farm a success

09.12.2009

The first boat tour during COP15 almost overreached its capacity as more people than anticipated joined the trip to Middelgrunden Offshore Wind Farm.

Over 70 people were gathered on 8 December for the boat tour and the participants were primarily journalists from Africa and Asia .

On the trip to Middelgrunden Offshore Wind Farm DONG Energy and the Danish Wind Industry Association presented the Danish wind story and told the journalist how Denmark has integrated 20 % wind power in the energy system.DONG Energy also gave the journalist a quick introduction to how a wind turbine operates and how it is erected on sea.

The CEO and COO of the Danish Wind Industry Association, Jan Hylleberg and Jakob Lau Holst , introduced the journalists to the wind industry’s goals – and hopes – for COP15 and were targeted for quite a few interviews with different media on the Danish achievements and future on wind energy.
