Henrik Poulsen said the company had seen continuing investor appetite as it talks to potential partners in its wind farm developments.

"We still see very solid interest in these projects, including the projects in the UK. I think investors generally understand that we don’t foresee any changes to the UK offshore wind market because of Brexit," Poulsen said.

"The build out in the UK is really driven by national needs and considerations rather than EU membership. I think investors are aware of that," he said, while conceding that the plunge in the pound since the Brexit vote would be a factor in discussions over valuation.
