Three new wind turbines at Prøvestenen will make a contribution to Copenhagen’s strategy of becoming CO2-neutral by 2025
On 22 January Copenhagen’s Deputy Mayor for Technical and Environmental Affairs, Morten Kabell, officially opened another three new land-based wind turbines, which have given CMP’s dry bulk area at Prøvestenen a completely new profile.
The entrance to Copenhagen is signalled in advance by an array of spinning offshore wind turbines, emphasising the city’s green profile. The three new wind turbines are a further important element in Copenhagen Municipality’s strategy of becoming CO2 neutral by 2025, through measures including the erection of more wind turbines around the city. It is also an important signal that CPH City & Port Development, and thereby CMP, is working to deliver developments that are increasingly environmentally compatible.
”It is a development we are engaged in within CMP through, among other things, reducing fuel consumption and thereby CO2-emissions from our machinery and vehicles, and we are pleased that Prøvestenen has acquired a visible and environmentally-sound symbol in the form of the three turbines,” says Gert Nørgaard, Strategy and Planning Manager, CMP.
The three wind turbines at Prøvestenen have an output of 2.3 MW each, they are 115 metres high, measured to the tip of the blade, and the towers are 80 metres in height. The wind turbines are owned by HOFOR, (Greater Copenhagen Utility), and they were put into operation during December. CMP’s parent company CPH City & Port Development owns the land where the new wind turbines are situated.
HOFOR is planning to erect another four 148 metre high wind turbines at Kalvebod Brygge, south of Copenhagen.
