Denmark's next offshore wind farm has gotten a name – Thor. According to parliamentarians, the name has little to do with Sif, Tyra and all the other viking-inspired North Sea oil and gas fields. Rather, the name is selected due to its location off the coast of the town Thorsminde, and because "Thor has a recognizable Nordic association and also functions well in English," according to a press release.
In any case, the facility will be Denmark's first to get a slightly more catchy title than preceding wind farms frugally named after mundane locations – a trend that has also taken hold in the booming US offshore wind market with project names such as Revolution Wind. This might not be the coming Danish tender's only US-inspired revolution.
