The 400 MW Anholt wind farm could soon be overtaken in the ranks as Denmark's largest offshore wind farm after the Danish government presents a draft for a new energy deal this Thursday. Danish newspaper Berlingske reports that the government's draft for the upcoming energy policy will involve plans to install an offshore wind farm of approximately 800 MW.
