Since we built our first offshore wind farm in 1991, we have maintained our position as a leader in offshore wind energy production. We have built more offshore wind farms than any other company in the world and now have the equivalent of more than 25% capacity in the market.

By 2020, we expect to have more than doubled our total production capacity to equal 16 million Europeans' annual energy consumption. We are convinced of the enormous potential of wind energy as a renewable energy source.
