The combined capacity factor of all 424 MW of offshore wind in Denmark was 39% in 2005, a year of relatively low winds. Age is no barrier to performance. Some of Denmark's oldest machines from the mid 1980s deliver capacity factors of 35% and more. The turbines with best productivity were a Bonus 2.3 MW unit at a coastal site in Denmark, an NEG Micon 2.75 MW unit in northern Germany and a Windworld 550 kW at Bockstigen off the Swedish island of Gotland.
