The 407MW offshore farm consists of 49 turbines, and is expected to boost wind power production in the country by 12%, with enough electricity to power 425,000 homes.

Developer Vattenfall won the contract to build the facility in 2015, with what was considered to be a historically low bid in comparison to previous projects.

CEO Magnus Hall said: Horns Rev 3 is the largest offshore wind farm in Scandinavia and shows our commitment to Denmarks ongoing transition to a renewable energy system.

The wind farm is a significant contribution to Vattenfalls production portfolio and takes us one step further in our ambition to enable a fossil-free living within one generation.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Climate, Energy and Utilities Minister Dan Jrgensen also attended the launch of the wind farm.
