The world's biggest offshore wind farm has started production and is set to generate enough electricity for around 200,000 homes.

The development by state-owned DONG Energy is situated 30 kilometers off the coast of western Denmark.

The Horns Rev 2 wind park has 91 turbines with a total production capacity of 209 megawatts.
Current from the turbines goes by buried cables to a transformer on the platform from where the electricity is brought ashore by a subsea cable.
