‘Orsted is the global leader in offshore wind power having delivered one-third of all global offshore wind capacity installed, encompassing some of the largest and most technologically advanced offshore wind farms in the world. DONG Energy made its first offshore wind investment nearly 25 years ago and now has over 3,000 MW of operational offshore wind projects. We are exciting about our proposed projects in both Massachusetts and New Jersey and see offshore wind as the perfect solution to the energy challenges in the Northeast.
We look forward to building an offshore wind industry here in the U.S., which will bring reliable, clean energy to thousands of households and businesses. We recognize that by working together with ocean users who have been using these waters for generations, we can make commercial scale offshore wind power a reality for the United States, whilst protecting the health of our ocean ecosystem. We find promise that the new marine spatial plans for the waters of New England and the Mid-Atlantic where we hold leases will provide greater insight in to exactly what is going on in these busy waters so that we can advance offshore wind in this new market and use resources in a truly sustainable way.’
