writes that the wind farm, called "LionLink", could be able to deliver power to around 1.8 million European homes, thanks to the 1.8 gigawatts potential output.

The cross-border wind farm could start producing energy sometime at the beginning of 2030 and the energy will be supplied, according to demand, between the Zuid-Holland region or the cities of Birmingham and Manchester.

Another cross-border wind power effort was developed between Germany and Denmark, both countries benefiting from the turbines' output of 400 megawatts.

Britain's energy minister Grant Schapps said that "today’s historic deal with the Netherlands connects our two countries together through this exciting feat of innovation and engineering - the largest of its kind in the world."

Besides green power supply and energy independence, the new project will also enable the creation of new jobs in both countries, contributing to the local economies.
