Ørsted partners with Tekmar to construct Hornsea Two

Tekmar, a provider of subsea cable and pipe protection systems and engineering, will enter a partnership with Ørsted in the development of Hornsea Two, a sister project to Hornsea One comprising of 165 turbines with a combined total capacity of 1.4 GW. Situated 89 km from the coast of Yorkshire, the project is expected to generate around 2,000 jobs during construction and 130 in the years following its expected completion in 2022.

The announcement of this new project comes shortly after reports of rapid success from Ørsted’s wind farms in the German North Sea, which produced and delivered over 10 TWh of electricity since finishing its construction in 2015. Following this success in Germany, Ørsted was awarded contracts for five more wind farms in the German North Sea, expected to finish construction by 2025.

The increasing success of Ørsted was predicted in 2011 (then operating under the name Dong Energy) when then-CEO Anders Eldrup predicted that the offshore wind farming industry would become far more competitive in the energy production industry following decreasing operating costs and increasing government subsidies into green energy. His predictions proved correct, as Ørsted is currently undergoing a rapid expansion. The new contract with Tekmar is set to take on the biggest project yet.
