A partnership helping to save
lives at sea

Orsted partnership with RNLI

Ørsted first partnered with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in 2015, helping to fund the lifeboat running costs of six lifeboat stations: Barrow; Clacton-on-Sea; Humber; New Brighton; Ramsgate; and Wells ― all of which are close to Ørsted’s offshore wind farm locations.

Our contribution has ensured volunteer crews can continue their lifesaving work at sea and in 2018 helped rescue 259 people and save 12 lives.

In 2018, Ørsted extended its partnership to include Skegness Lifeboat Station. We now support a total of seven RNLI lifeboat stations across the UK and will contribute more than £200,000 to help save even more lives over the next three years.

“We are so grateful to Ørsted for their continued generosity in making a significant contribution to the lifeboat running costs of our stations. Their support will be felt most by our volunteer lifeboat crews and the people in the communities that we aim to protect.”
