Ørsted Has 6.7 GW of Offshore Wind Under Construction

Ørsted has 6.7 GW of offshore wind under construction in 2024 across several projects worldwide, more than ever before in the company’s history, according to a recent newsletter from the global offshore wind developer.

The capacity the company has under construction this year is significantly contributed by the Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm in the UK, after Ørsted made the final investment decision on the project in December 2023.
