Denmark's Department of Climate, Energy and Utilities and the state of Virginia (U.S.) entered into an agreement to develop the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project, the largest single offshore wind farm established to date (2.6 GW). The farm will be completed in 2026.

The state of Virginia targets to install 5.2 GW of offshore wind by 2034 and it is cooperating with Denmark due to its long-term experience in offshore wind technologies. Virginia’s port facilities on the U.S. East Coast are among the biggest in the area and the state intends to become a central hub for the management of wind turbines.
