The wind farm was commissioned in 1995 with 10 turbines, each a 500 kW Vestas V39.[1][2][3][4][5] The turbines are 45 metres high, based on concrete foundations at 3-6 meter deep waters, and together they produce enough electricity to supply c. 2,800 households.[6] The Tunø Knob Offshore Wind Farm was the first offshore wind farm by Danish wind turbine company Vestas.
