Hi! We’re Ørsted Germany

Would you like to actively shape the energy transition with your work? At Ørsted, we are breaking new ground every day to create a world that is totally committed to green energy through innovative solutions. Work for one of the most sustainable energy companies in the world.

Since 2005 we have been working on the German energy transition at our locations in Hamburg, Norden-Norddeich and Berlin. While our focus in Germany has been on offshore wind energy and new, innovative energy solutions for companies for many years, we expanded our portfolio in 2022 to include onshore wind and solar energy. As part of this expansion, our new locations and branches in Regensburg, Lauf a. d. Pegnitz, Potsdam, Essen and Worms have been added. We will also be contributing to the production of green hydrogen in the future.

We have already built four offshore wind farms in the German North Sea – two more are being added by 2024/25. Since 2022, our portfolio also includes three onshore wind farms and a solar park. More are already being planned.

Our aim is to drive forward the transition to a completely new, green energy system to limit climate change. To this end, we are constantly on the lookout for qualified and motivated employees who will work with us to create sustainable solutions for a green future.

Working at Ørsted has fascinated me from the start. The company has a unique vision and it’s simply fun to work in this dynamic environment with committed colleagues and to visibly contribute to the German energy transformation.
Iris Franco Fratini Head of Corporate Affairs, Germany

Our projects in Germany

Offshore wind power

Our wind farms in the German North Sea already produce enough green electricity to supply around 1.2 million German households each year. The projects currently under construction are expected to add a further 1.3 million by 2025.

Onshore wind energy

We have many years of experience in the project development of onshore wind farms – from planning and construction to operation. We currently operate three onshore wind farms in Germany.

Solar energy

With our portfolio expansion in 2022, we have gained valuable expertise in the field of solar energy. Our solar park “Altenschwand” in Bavaria has a capacity of 10.4 MW.

Energy solutions

With our Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPA), we offer companies tailor-made energy solutions and thus give them the opportunity to become part of the energy transition.

Our locations in Germany
  • Hamburg

    Since 2005, Hamburg has been the seat of Ørsted's German head office. Over 130 employees work in the port city on the development of new offshore wind farms and the management of our existing facilities in the German North Sea. We also develop customised energy solutions for industry and public utilities.

    Hamburg is a city with a high quality of life, maritime flair and a diverse cultural offering. Due to its proximity to the water as well as numerous green spaces and nature reserves, ecological awareness among Hamburg's citizens is very high. For us, this makes the Hanseatic city the ideal location to promote the German energy transition.

    Our office


    Located directly at the Elbe, our Hamburg office offers an incomparable view over the port of Hamburg. We have rented three floors in Dockland, a modern office building near the former England ferry pier and now the cruise terminal.

    With its striking cross-section, the six-storey building not only looks like the bow of a ship protruding over the water, but also has its own landing stage. Our employees can come directly to the office by harbour ferry. Various bus and train lines are also within walking distance.

    The canteen offers a wide range of fresh and regional dishes every day. With drinks and fresh fruit in the office, we ensure the well-being of our colleagues. They also benefit from various sports activities and events directly on site.

    The nearby Hamburg district Altona-Altstadt offers a wide range of gastronomic and cultural activities for lunch or after work. In addition to a large selection of restaurants and cafés as well as theatres, cinemas and museums, the colourful district is home to numerous shops and small shops that invite you to stroll and browse.

  • Norden-Norddeich

    For the operational management of our wind farms, we have been based in the Lower Saxony port of Norden-Norddeich since 2013. From here we are ideally located at a distance from our offshore wind farms. The more than 180 employees at our location in East Frisia are service technicians, deployment planners and other professions directly involved in the maintenance of our turbines.
     
    On the high seas, work is done in shifts – the colleagues sleep on a so-called Service Operation Vessel. Before they are deployed in the wind farms, our employees go through numerous training courses. After all, their work is physically and mentally demanding – and safety is always our top priority.

    As part of the Offshore NETz – an association of companies from the maritime and offshore wind industry operating in Norden-Norddeich – we are committed to creating long-term jobs and thus bringing the positive economic effects of the energy transition to the East Frisia region.

    Our engagement in the region

    As part of the Community, we feel very close to Norddeich. This is why we have been working in partnership with the town for many years and support various projects on site. In addition to sponsoring the Ørsted Sommerstaffel Norden, we also cooperate with the Seal Station Norddeich: As part of this cooperation, an "offshore space" has been created to show what is being done in the construction and operation of the facilities to ensure that no animals are harmed. Learn more about our sponsoring activities! 

    Typical roles

    • Administration & Service functions
    • Engineering & Construction
    • People & Development (HR)
    • Operations & Maintenance


    Our office


    With our office building in Norddeich, we are demonstrating that we are committed to renewable energies and sustainability, and not only in energy production. The building is heated by geothermal energy, with solar panels providing hot water. The daily lunch is supplied by a local supplier.

    "Ørsted offers me a wide range of development opportunities and the chance to discover various fields of expertise. We have a lot of freedom to develop and implement ideas ourselves. This is supported by very trusting and solution-oriented collaboration. Who can claim to be on a first-name basis with the CEO?“
    — Thijs Schless: Head of Regional Support, Norden-Norddeich

    The direct location of our office at the harbour in Norddeich guarantees short distances to the ferries to the East Frisian islands Norderney and Juist. The beach is also within walking distance and, like the Wadden Sea, invites you to go for a walk. Norddeich also offers ideal conditions for kite surfers – whether beginners or professionals. We work where others spend their holidays.

    Our office


    Our Regensburg office is located on the 2nd floor in the traditional building of a former snuff factory – in the heart of the historic old town. The central location in the middle of the pedestrian zone offers a wide range of restaurants for lunch breaks. And there is also a wide range of cultural activities on the doorstep for after work.

    The main train station and all bus routes are within walking distance. Many of our colleagues also take advantage of the central location in Regensburg and come to the office by bike. The river Donau is also just a few minutes' walk from the office and is perfect for an after-work stroll.
