Ørsted UK (formally DONG Energy) is a renewable energy company that takes tangible action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. Ørsted develops, constructs and operates offshore wind farms across Europe, Asia and the US, develops and operates bioenergy plants, innovative waste-to-energy solutions and provides smart energy products to its power distribution and energy customers. Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted employs 5,800 people worldwide, including over 900 in the UK.
Ørsted is the global leader in offshore wind and the UK is our biggest market for this form of energy, with nine wind farms in operation and another four in construction.
To date, we have invested £6 billion in the development of UK offshore wind farms and plan to double that by 2020. We are committed to ensuring that our presence contributes to sustainable growth and development.
In the Humber region, we are currently expanding our East Coast Hub on Grimsby’s Royal Docks. Currently the operations base for our Westermost Rough, Lincs and Race Bank offshore wind farms, this site will also be the base from which we operate the largest wind farm in the world: Hornsea Project One, currently under construction.
Ørsted UK is delighted to join the Bondholders Scheme. The decision to join the Bondholders signifies our long term commitment to the Humber region and we look forward to getting involved in activities to promote and encourage further investment in the region.
