Denmark looking into building North Sea wind energy island

The artificial island, which will include a harbour and a landing strip for aircraft, is proposed to be six square kilometres in size and be located on Dogger Bank, a large sandbank in a shallow area about 100 km off the east coast of the UK. Just establishing an island at Dogger Bank from stone and sand is expected to cost over 10 billion kroner, and that’s without the cost associated with the estimated 7,000 wind turbines planned to be erected there. But however costly the plan, the benefits of one or more of these islands could ultimately provide energy to 80 million European consumers. (Copenhagen Post)
