Ørsted A/S


Wind Power has an ambitious strategy to continue leading the offshore wind industry; at the same time we have a strong focus on bringing down the Cost of Energy. We have unique knowledge and skills which we use throughout every step of the projects - from the early steps of development, during the construction phase, and through to operation and maintenance of the wind farms – and everything is done in a safe way.

  • Wind Power has unique competences and knowledge within developing, building and operating wind farms

  • We take responsibility in bringing down the Cost of Energy

  • Our unique partnership model contributes to the continued development of offshore wind farms

Wind Power has for more than 20 years been active in the offshore wind industry resulting in unique knowledge and skills today. We have achieved a strong market position and developed and constructed the largest portfolio of offshore wind farms in Northern Europe. Further, we have proved that we can operate our portfolio of wind farms with a high availability for generating power. And more wind farms are on the way, such as London Array, Anholt Offshore Wind Farm and Borkum Riffgrund 1.

The offshore wind industry is facing the challenge of making wind power competitive with other energy resources. We therefore have a strong focus on bringing down the Cost of Energy. Larger turbines, optimisation of operations and maintenance concepts, reduction of foundation and cable installation costs are some of the elements we and our collaborators constantly look to improve in relation to this matter.
