Wind power procurement

Responsible for the sourcing of goods and services going into the construction and/or operation
of our wind farms

Ørsted Wind Power is subject to Directive 2014/25/EU of the European Parliament, and our procurement will take place according to this where applicable. Note: certain countries are exempt from the directive, e.g. the United Kingdom.

Relationship building

Building relationships with capable, competitive and innovative  suppliers is essential to delivering new projects successfully.

Wherever we operate, we seek a positive engagement with the local community. This promotes development of the local economy and supply chain.

Our approach to selecting key suppliers, of specific supplies and services, brings mutual benefits, including cost reductions due to economies of scale.  Our key suppliers understand and support Ørsted in our journey towards continuously reducing the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCoE).
