Unconventional methods sometimes become necessary when preparing the construction of a large-scale wind farm. In northern Jutland in Denmark Vattenfall has bought most of a village to pave the way for the Nørrekær Enge II wind farm which will become the country's largest.
Vattenfall's onshore wind farm Clashindarroch in Scotland has generated electricity for the first time. Once fully commissioned the wind farm will be capable of meeting the electricity needs of roughly 27,000 households.
Vattenfall/Nuon is the first energy company on the Dutch market to offer a new service from a wind farm that will stabilise the grid.
