Ørsted Becomes Corporate Partner to EOW MBA
We are very proud to welcome Ørsted as a Corporate Partner to the Executive Offshore Wind MBA conducted by the Offshore Wind Energy Centre (CMEW UMG) at Gdynia Maritime University. We are convinced that Ørsted’s involvement in the EOW MBA will be invaluable to the enrichment of the Programme and to making the Executive Offshore Wind MBA a unique learning experience.
Ørsted's vision is a world powered exclusively by renewable energy sources. Headquartered in Denmark, the company is present in several markets, including the United States, several European countries and APAC.
Poland is one of the key markets in which Ørsted has already operated for 10 years and currently employs over 300 people (over 6,600 worldwide). As part of a strategic partnership with PGE, Ørsted will implement and manage the largest offshore wind farm in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, with a total capacity of 2.5GW. As part of the second phase of the development of the Polish offshore wind market, Ørsted has established another strategic partnership with the Polish energy company - ZE PAK, which is in the process of transformation from fossil fuels to producing energy only from renewable sources by 2030.
This is another step on the way to climate neutrality, which Ørsted is already set to acheive in 2025. Several years down the road leading to a zero-emission transformation, the Danish company has gone from being one of the largest European companies extracting fossil fuels into a global leader in offshore wind energy.
Ørsted is the world's largest and most experienced offshore wind developer and over 30 years has installed approximately 1600 turbines within 32 projects across the world. The company develops, builds, and operates not only offshore but also onshore wind farms, solar farms, energy storage and biomass-fired combined heat and power plants, as well as providing customers with modern energy products.
Ørsted's strategic goal is to achieve around 50 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, of which around 30 GW is to come from offshore wind farms, 17.5 GW from onshore wind and solar farms, and around 2.5 GW from other sources, including power plants for sustainably sourced biomass or hydrogen from renewable sources. In 2022, Ørsted was recognised as the most sustainable energy company in the world for the fourth consecutive year, according to the prestigious Global 100 Corporate Knights ranking. TIME magazine ranked the company among the 100 most influential companies in the world, a clear indication to other companies of the path to sustainability success.
We look forward to working with Ørsted leaders and experts within the Executive Offshore Wind MBA.
