Ørsted has announced that its acquisition of Deepwater Wind has been finalized. As per our announcement on October 8, 2018, Ørsted made an agreement with the D.E. Shaw group to acquire 100% of the equity in Deepwater Wind at a purchase price of USD 510 million. All conditions to close have been satisfied, including review of the transaction by US authorities.

The new combined organization—Ørsted US Offshore Wind—will be able to deliver clean energy to every coastal state in the densely-populated east coast corridor between Massachusetts and Virginia. Seven states in that region have already committed to build more than 10GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030. The new company launches as the clear leader in the US market, with the most comprehensive geographic coverage and the largest pipeline of development capacity, totaling over 8GW.

Thomas Brostrøm, CEO of Ørsted US Offshore Wind and President of Ørsted North America, says: “We have created a world-class team, with both deep experience building large-scale offshore wind projects and intimate knowledge of the US markets. The approval of this deal signals the importance of growing the US offshore wind industry. We are moving quickly to integrate the two US organizations so we can deliver large-scale clean energy projects as soon as possible. We look forward to continuing Deepwater Wind’s first-class work along the Eastern Seaboard and taking the US market to the next level.”

Jeffrey Grybowski, Co-CEO of Ørsted US Offshore Wind, says: “It is very exciting for two pioneering companies to join forces to create the clear leader in the US offshore wind market. Our teams will now begin to merge together to advance our existing projects and to prepare for our next round of projects for the East Coast. We have very big plans for the US.”

Following the official close of transaction, Ørsted US Offshore Wind will be led by a management team headed by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Thomas Brostrøm of Ørsted, Co-CEO Jeffrey Grybowski, President and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) David Hang, both originally of Deepwater Wind, and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Claus Bøjle Møller of Ørsted.

Ørsted US Offshore Wind will be joint headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. The company will begin integration over the coming weeks and months and is further strengthening its presence in other key markets.
