Dong Energy has invested GBP 5.5 billion into the UK since 2004, with over GBP 4 billion committed to offshore wind.
The company released these figures in today’s “Dong Energy in the UK“ report.
Dong built its first UK offshore wind farm in 2004. By now, wind turbines installed by the company could supply power to around 1.5 million households.
While the offshore wind industry in the UK could create around 50,000 direct and indirect jobs by 2023, Dong already plans to expands its workforce of 200 employees in the North-West to over 300 by the next year.
“Dong Energy’s vision is to lead this energy transformation. We want to supply energy that is green, independent and cost-effective, while ensuring that we are delivering the most value to our customers, the societies that we are part of and to our owners,” said Henrik Poulsen, CEO Dong Energy.
