Ørsted has concluded its 50% divestment of offshore wind farm Hornsea 2, the Danish utility informs in a statement Thursday evening.

The decision to carry out the farm-down sale, worth GBP 3bn, was made in March this year.

The buyer is a consortium consisting of Crédit Agricole Assurances and Axa Im Alts, acting on behalf of clientele.

The 1.3GW facility, featuring 165 wind turbines, is located 89km off the Yorkshire coast in northeastern England.

Thursday’s announcement will have no bearing on Ørsted’s full-year guidance for 2022, the utility writes.
