- When completed during the first half of 2017 the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm will be able to supply CO2-free power equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of more than 230,000 households. The wind farm will consist of 32 MHI Vestas V164-8.0MW wind turbines, and Burbo Bank Extension will be the first large-scale wind farm to deploy this new turbine.
The combined investment from PKA and KIRKBI A/S totals DKK 6.6 billion, giving each of the companies an equal ownership interest of 25%. The total sum is to be paid in the period 2016-2017.
For the LEGO Group the investment fits well with its high ambition of making a positive impact on the environment. Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, President and Chief Executive Officer of the LEGO Group comments:
