Danish multinational power company Ørsted has announced the installation of 1,500 offshore wind turbines at its global projects, with the installation of the 25th turbines at its Dutch Borssele 1 & 2’s 8MW wind farm.

Ørsted is currently constructing 3GW of offshore wind capacity, with a target of 15GW of installed capacity in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, UK and the US by 2025, thanks in part to the use of larger turbines.

The company’ first installation took place in 1991 at the Vindeby wind farm in the company’s home country of Denmark.

Anders Lindberg, Executive Vice President, Offshore EPC and QHSE, said: “The 1,500 offshore wind turbines installed by Ørsted will contribute significantly to a greener future, but there’s no doubt that the potential of offshore wind reaches far beyond that.

“Today, offshore wind power is not only a clean but also a cost-competitive alternative to power generated by the burning of fossil fuels.”
