The Danish Department of Climate, Energy, and Utilities has entered into a partnership agreement on offshore wind with the US state of Virginia. Several Danish companies are already establishing themselves in the state.
Among other things. Bladt Industries and Semco Maritime have received orders in connection with the establishment of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project, and Siemens Gamesa is establishing production facilities for wind turbine blades in the state. In addition, Ørsted has been involved in a collaboration on the construction of 12-megawatt test turbines in Virginia, and Rambøll has been chosen as an advisor to the American energy company Dominion Energy, which will build the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project. The Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities, together with the Danish Energy Agency and with assistance from the embassy in Washington since October 2021, has been working dedicatedly on the cooperation agreement with Virginia.
