Denmark’s Dong Energy has received government approval for Hornsea Project Two, the world’s largest offshore wind farm, 55 kilometres off the U.K. coast in the North Sea.

According to an article from The Guardian, the 300-turbine project, valued at $10 billion CDN, would span more than 480 sq. km off the coast of Grimsby.

The government approval of the project comes as company officials continue to debate making the final investment in the project.

Should the project move forward, the government estimates that close to 2,000 construction jobs would be created, as well nearly 600 maintenance and operational jobs.

The 1,800 MW wind farm would produce enough power to supply 1.8 million homes annually.
