Steady winds, shallow water depths and a geographically favorable location - the North Sea is predestined for the construction of offshore wind farms. Currently, wind farms with a total output of 30 gigawatts are installed, most of them close to the coast. However, in order to realize the expansion plans, the wind turbines will have to move further out to sea. But how will the electricity then reach people on land? Torben Glar Nielsen, former CTO of Energinet, and Wilfried Breuer, Managing Director of MR, came up with the idea of building artificial islands for distribution, and for this purpose together with other companies they launched the North-Sea Wind Power Hub program in 2017.
