Dutch open ‘world’s largest offshore’ wind farm

Dutch officials on Monday opened what is being billed as one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms, with 150 turbines spinning in action far out in the North Sea. At full winds the Gemini windpark has a generating capacity of some 600 megawatts, and will help supply some 785,000 Dutch households with renewable energy, the company said. Gemini will contribute about 13 percent of the country’s total renewable energy supply, and about 25 percent of its wind power
