Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, will inaugurate Vattenfall’s next and largest offshore wind farm (OWF), Horns Rev 3, in the North Sea on 22 August.

The European energy company said in a press note that Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm is ready to supply fossil-free electricity corresponding to an annual electricity consumption of approx. 425,000 Danish households.

The wind farm will be officially inaugurated with a reception on 22 August at the port of Hvide Sande, which, from 2024, will constitute the base for maintenance and operation of the 49 wind turbines.

"The opening of Horns Rev 3 is proof of our commitment to enabling a fossil-free living within one generation. We look forward to and are proud that His Royal Highness the Crown Prince will attend and start up the wind farm," says Magnus Hall, CEO of Vattenfall.

The Crown Prince, who will start up the farm together with pupils from a local school, will, after the official event, look at a service vessel in the port and visit Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm by helicopter.
