Ørsted has its hands full in New Jersey

With yesterday's tender win in the state, Ørsted reports receiving a commitment from GE about an assembly plant in New Jersey – and that EEW's foundation factory will handle the whole process.

On Wednesday, Ørsted secured its largest project so far in the US. With 1.148 GW allocated from New Jersey's second offshore wind auction, the Danish utility now holds contracts totaling roughly 4 GW, including divested interest. More than half of this volume – 2.228 – is located in the state, where the license bought in 2016 from RES is now fully utilized.

"It’s an honor to be selected again by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. With Ocean Wind 1 and 2 we will deliver over 2,200 MW of offshore energy to the Garden State while attracting leading manufacturers to New Jersey," writes Martin Neubert, deputy chief executive and chief commercial officer at Ørsted, in a press statement.
