Denmark is embarking on the largest construction project in its history with the assembly of the first energy island in the North Sea. The 120,000 square meter site could serve as a hub for as many as 200 wind turbines, storing and supplying electricity to Denmark and its neighbours.


The impact of greenhouse gases on our planet is a problem too large to ignore. Denmark alone has committed to a 70 % reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Striving to turn the tide, engineers and scientists across the globe are fighting time to find a solution to our energy needs. One that is renewable, whilst supplying the huge amount of power required.

The completion of this megaproject is a way off yet. How to get there in the first place starts all the way down at the seabed.
