As a global leader in renewable energy, we’ve built more offshore wind farms than any other developer in the world – including the world’s first and the world’s largest. Our wind farms can be found all over the world, off the coasts of Europe, the US, and the Asia-Pacific region. And our global footprint continues to grow. On top of the 8.9 GW of offshore wind we’ve installed, we have a further 10.3 GW either under construction or awarded.   

Find out more about each of our offshore projects below. You can also access our operational and meteorological offshore wind farm data. We offer this data to help research, education and development in green energy.
