Offshore wind developer establishes office in the Isle of Man

Mon, 27 Mar 2023

An offshore wind developer has confirmed they will open an office on the Isle of Man.

Ørsted said the move is part of their commitment to developing the Island’s first-ever offshore wind farm.

The office in Douglas, will accommodate the Isle of Man Offshore Wind Farm development team.

The Island's first offshore wind farm is progressing through the early stages of development after Ørsted and the Manx Government signed an Agreement for Lease at the end of 2015. 

Ørsted’s John Galloway has taken up the role as Development Director for the offshore wind farm and is looking forward to expanding his project team, saying: “This office is the start of exciting things to come for Ørsted in the Island. We will continue to work hard with local stakeholders in the coming months and years to design a project that truly supports the Isle of Man Government’s own net zero ambitions.”

Chief Minister Alf Cannan MHK, commented: “I am delighted that Ørsted have chosen to open an office on the Isle of Man. Renewable energy and its benefits are becoming much clearer and there is the additional benefit of new jobs and developing technologies.”
