What we do

What we do

Wind Power develops, builds and operates wind farms in Northern Europe. We are responsible for one quarter of the total offshore wind capacity, and five million Europeans receive clean electricity from our offshore wind farms. Offshore wind is DONG Energy’s most important and largest growth area.

 

 

Clean energy from offshore wind

​We have built more offshore wind farms than any other company worldwide. Our objective is to maintain and enhance our leadership position. Five million Europeans receive clean electricity from our offshore wind farms. In 2015, we opened three new offshore wind farms - Borkum Riffgrund 1 in Germany, West of Duddon Sands, and Westermost Rough in the UK. By 2020, the farms we have built will be able to supply clean electricity to 16 million Europeans.

The next generation of offshore wind turbines

One of the most important steps is to use the next generation of wind turbines of 5 MW and beyond. Each unit produces more electricity than other offshore wind turbines. DONG Energy has entered into a framework agreement with Siemens for the supply of 300 offshore wind turbines each with a capacity of 6 MW, providing a total capacity of 1,800 MW. These offshore wind turbines will be capable of supplying electricity to meet the annual consumption of more than 1.5 million households and they are an important step towards growing the industry and making wind energy from offshore wind turbines more competitive.

Positive consequences

In addition to the increasing electricity output from offshore wind benefiting customers in the form of cleaner electricity, we also contribute to value creation and economic growth in the local areas in which we work. Anholt offshore wind farm created around 8,000 new jobs during the establishment phase.
