Orsted will join with Denmark’s largest pension fund to bid to build the world’s first artificial energy island linked to up to 10GW of offshore wind in the North Sea, the two companies confirmed.

Orsted and ATP said their alliance “brings together the capabilities of the world’s leading offshore wind developer and Denmark’s largest institutional investor” to advance the project, which will link massive wind deployment with interconnections to multiple European nations.

Denmark’s parliament agreed in February to advance the epic project some 80km off Jutland, with the state remaining the largest shareholder in what is the nation’s largest ever construction project.
