Energy Island


Vindo Denmark 01

We are part of the VindØ consortium that in 2020 presented the vision of the world’s first energy island: VindØ The artificial island is to be built in the Danish part of the North Sea, around 100 km from land. Here, optimal conditions exist for generating clean, green energy using wind turbines.

The ambition is for the island to be established by 2030, at the latest, and connect 3 GW of offshore wind. Over time, the island will connect 10 GW offshore wind and host energy storage and Power-to-X as well as accommodation, O&M facilities, and HVDC converters for transmission and interconnectors.

Offshore Wind

The island will help enable the electrification of Danish society and allow the electricity consumption of Danish households and companies to be covered by green electricity. Initially, the island will be able to accommodate 3 GW of offshore wind. Over time, the island will connect up to 10 GW.

HVDC Transmission

High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology will be used to bundle energy from several windfarms and transport this to Denmark. The electricity from the energy islands can also be exported to our neighboring countries and thus contribute to the green transition in Europe.

Harbour Facilities

The island will include a harbour which can be used to support offshore wind farm installation and optimize operations and maintenance (O&M) activities as well as other co-use options.

Future Innovation

In the long run, energy sources must be able to connect technologies that can store or convert this green power into, for example, green fuels (through so-called “Power-to-X”).
