E.ON has won the right to build Rodsand II, an offshore wind farm south of the island Lolland in Denmark.

Rodsand II, which is reportedly the largest offshore wind farm in E.ON’s portfolio, will have a capacity of around 200MW and will provide enough clean, renewable energy to power 200,000 homes – a full 2% of total Danish power demand.

Hakan Buskhe, CEO of E.ON Sverige, said: Rodsand II, a wind farm that is almost double the biggest Swedish wind farm Lillgrund in Oresund, will reduce the carbon dioxide emissions with 700,000 tones in the Nordic power system.
