No More Love For Canada: Ørsted Wants to Concentrate on the U.S. Offshore Development

Danish offshore developer Ørsted has abandoned a partnership with Canadian developer NaiKun Wind Energy. This means that the first offshore wind farm in Canada will probably be still a few years away.

The Danish offshore specialist Ørsted recently acquired the American offshore developer Deepwater Wind, thereby securing a large project pipeline for U.S. waters for the construction of offshore wind farms. This obviously has consequences for the neighbours in Canada, where a partnership with the developer NaiKun Wind Energy will not be continued.

According to CMFE Research, Thomas Brostrom, President of Ørsted North America, explained that although some progress has been made in Canada in recent years, the market is not yet ready for offshore wind. Apparently, the initial focus will be on the USA, where there is already a first offshore wind farm in operation.

Meanwhile, the NaiKun Wind Energy Group is holding talks with other potential partners. Specifically, this will involve a planned offshore wind farm on the west coast between the town of Prince Rupert and the Haisa Gwaii Islands, which belong to British Colombia. The company stated that all provincial and national regulatory approvals required for a 400 MW complex are in place.
