Boat tour to an offshore wind farm a success


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.
