About Us

The Skipjack Wind projects will be built, owned, and operated by Ørsted, the world's leading developer of offshore wind projects.

The Ørsted vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. Ørsted has been ranked one of the world’s most sustainable energy companies and is recognized on the CDP Climate Change A List as a global leader on climate action.

The world leader in offshore wind at home and abroad

Since building the world’s first offshore wind farm in 1991, we’ve gained unrivaled experience and know-how, defining the industry as it exists today. We’ve built more than 1,500 offshore wind turbines around the world, generating clean, reliable energy for millions of people and creating true value for local communities everywhere we work.

We own and operate America’s first-ever offshore wind farm off Block Island. Just down the coast from the Delmarva Peninsula, we constructed the first – and currently only – offshore wind turbines in U.S. federal waters. This achievement was made at the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project, which we built on behalf of Dominion Energy off the coast of Virginia Beach.

In addition to Skipjack Wind, we’ve been entrusted by the states of New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut to deliver each of their first offshore wind projects, too.

We believe that it's time to take real action to create a world that runs on green energy. Renewable energy holds the key to a cleaner future, and we need to act now to reduce the effects of climate change.

Despite the progress, we believe that more can be done to reduce the consequences of climate change. More than a third of the global carbon emissions stem from energy generation.

This huge figure made us rethink our business strategy back in 2008, and that’s when we embarked on our journey of transforming from a fossil-fuel to a renewable energy company. We increased our investments in offshore wind farms and started to convert our power stations from firing coal to using sustainable biomass as fuel. In 2017, we took the final step and divested our oil and gas business.
