Dutch Utility Proposes Artificial North Sea Island & Massive Offshore Wind Farm

The island would be used to convert the AC current received from the wind turbines to DC current, which would then be sent via undersea cable to the Netherlands and the UK. Eventually, additional cables could send power to any country bordering the North Sea.
