The Danish government has presented a plan for the establishment of giant wind turbines, which with their 330 meters will be taller than the Eiffel Tower. The proposal will now be discussed in conciliation. The industry cheers as the Nature Conservation Association remains skeptical.

The Danish government will provide an opportunity for the test sites at Østerild and Høvsøre to be extended with giant turbines respectively 330 meters and 200 meters.

"The test sites will help to reduce the prices of offshore wind, increase exports of Danish energy technology, create Danish jobs and realize the government's goal that Denmark will be the first country in the world where offshore wind can maintain itself entirely without support," says the Minister of Energy, Supply and Climate Lars Christian Lilleholt (V) to tv2.dk

The Minister of Industry Minister Brian Mikkelsen (K) indicates that Denmark is leading the wind area and would like to hold on to the jobs and growth that the industry creates.

"With five new test sites, we make it possible to test larger turbines and new technology, so we can maintain our global Danish leadership in the wind area," said Brian Mikkelsen, according to TV 2.

The test sites have already received criticism, and the Danish Society for Nature Conservation believes that it is preposterous to build turbines in forests according to TV 2.

On the other hand, there is satisfaction in the wind turbine industry, welcoming the prospect of even larger turbines in Denmark, according to Jan Hylleberg, managing director of the Danish Wind Industry. He's sure that they will be able to increase growth in the industry.

Before the Eiffel Tower sees itself be bested by a wind turbine, the proposal must be discussed in conciliation with Socialdemokratiet, Dansk Folkeparti og SF, be subject to an EIA study, as neighbors and other stakeholders will be consulted.
The tallest wind turbine is 229,5 meters, was built by Nordex and stands in Germany, 100 km. north of Frankfurt
