Ørsted has posted almost 30 job vacancies for its operations in the US, including several positions related to offshore wind.
The positions in offshore wind operations span across a range of fields, from commercial project management, contract management, offshore cable installation and geoscience construction management, to electrical and grid connection engineering.
Furthermore, some of the total of 29 currently open positions are part of the company’s Graduate Programme, a two-year structured development programme that focuses on developing skills and gaining experience in relevant areas.
In the US, the developer has operational hubs in Chicago, Boston, and Providence, with Boston being the head office of the developer’s offshore wind business. The company also has offices in Annapolis, Atlantic City, Austin, Charlottesville, and New York City.
Earlier this year, Ørsted announced it would establish its North American Digital Operations Headquarters in Newark, New Jersey.
The company, which was the first European offshore wind developer to enter the US market in 2015, owns and operates the country’s first offshore wind farm, Block Island Wind Farm, after acquiring Deepwater Wind in 2018. Ørsted has also worked on Dominion Energy’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) demonstration project, which comprises the first turbines ever to be installed in the US federal waters.
The developer further has around 4 GW of awarded offshore wind capacity through six projects on the US East Coast, with the South Fork offshore wind farm now close to completing the federal permitting process and the Sunrise Wind project entering the federal review.
