Ocean Winds (OW) is an international company dedicated to offshore wind energy and created as a 50-50 joint venture, owned by EDP Renewables and ENGIE. Driven by its belief that offshore wind energy is an essential part of the global energy transition, OW develops, finances, builds and operates offshore wind farm projects all around the world. OW, headquartered in Madrid, is primarily targeting markets in Europe, the United-States, and selected geographies in Asia, where most of the growth is expected to come from. OW currently has projects in 7 countries (Belgium, France, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, UK and USA).
With a strong international portfolio, we have an excellent track record of developing and operating projects. This includes operations such as Windfloat Atlantic (Portugal) floating project which stands as a cornerstone for the Industry and Seamade (Belgium), as well as Moray East (becoming Scotland’s largest offshore windfarm), which has celebrated the installation of the last of its 100 turbines and its full output to the UK national grid (900 MW) in 2022. OW has a track record of using its strength as global leaders in the emerging offshore wind sector to create opportunities in the local communities in which they have presence.
Ocean Winds (OW) was created as both ENGIE and EDPR shared the vision of renewables, particularly offshore wind, playing a key role in the global energy transition and in the wake of five year’s successful cooperation as consortium partners. Both developers share the combined vision of innovating towards a carbon-neutral world. EDPR is a Madrid-based global leader in the renewable energy sector and is the world’s fourth largest wind energy producer. ENGIE is a French multinational energy and services company which focuses on the production and supply of energy, services and regeneration. It is a key player in Europe and a leader in the energy transition process.
OW’s mission is to make offshore wind one of the main sources of renewable energy by delivering more efficient and sustainable wind energy solutions. We are empowered by clean and endless wind energy and believe that it will lead us towards a better world.
