World’s biggest offshore wind company enters Australia with big project plans | RenewEconomy

Ørsted, the world’s biggest offshore wind developer, has confirmed it plans to make major investments in Australia, with the initial focus on the country’s first offshore wind zone in Gippsland, Victoria.

Ørsted, whose interest in Australian offshore wind was first reported by RenewEconomy earlier this year, joins a host of major international energy players jockeying for position in the nascent Australian offshore wind industry.

These include Iberdrola, Shell, Equinor, Macquarie Group’s Corio, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, and Vena Energy, plus a host of smaller players such as OceanEx, Flotation Energy, Bluefloat, and more.
