Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is a Danish offshore wind power wind farm in the Kattegat, between Djursland and Anholt island. With a nameplate capacity of 400 megawatts (MW), it is the third largest offshore wind farm in the world (along with BARD Offshore 1) and the largest in Denmark. A cable from the wind farm to Anholt will permit the replacement of most of the current diesel-powered electricity on the island.

The project was conceived in February 2008, as part of the Danish government's Energy Policy Agreement. DONG Energy was the only bidder for the project, and received the license to build it in 2010.

The wind farm costs an estimated 10 billion Danish kroner (€1.35 bn, US$1.65 bn). DONG has contracted with Siemens Wind Power to supply 111 3.6 MW wind turbines for the project, placed in 14 metres (46 ft) water depth. During operation, DONG will receive a feed-in tariff of 1.051 DKK/kW·h (17 US¢/kW·h) for the first 20 TW·h (about 12–13 years of production), whereas the 207 MW Rødsand 2 receives 0.629 DKK/kW·h for 10 TW·h.

Now let us take a look at the video provided by Dong:
