Maximising the opportunities for the Humber region and UK industry
We have invested over £1 billion in the Humber region, including more than £45 million directly into local community, education, and skills development in the region to date, such as the £1m donation to the Grimsby’s Horizon Youth Zone, with significant further investments planned.
We are also helping to support a growing UK supply chain. In the past five years alone, we have placed major contracts with hundreds of UK suppliers with £4.5 billion invested to date and a further £8.6 billion expected to be invested over the next decade.

Ørsted is playing a leading role in delivering the Offshore Wind Sector Deal, an ambitious partnership between the UK Government and the offshore wind industry that will see 50GW of offshore wind by 2030.
In addition to supporting the continued development of the UK’s offshore wind clusters, including the Humber, North Wales/North West and East Anglia, Ørsted is also involved in a number of collaborative business support programmes, which act as a catalyst for innovation and seek to leverage skills and capabilities from adjacent sectors. This includes the University of Hull’s Aura initiative, the Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult’s Fit For Offshore Renewables initiative and NOF Energy.
