Gode Wind 3 is currently under construction alongside the Borkum Riffgrund 3 Offshore Wind Farm, where Ørsted and Glennmont are already 50/50 owners. Furthermore, Glennmont also co-owns Ørsted’s Gode Wind 1 Offshore Wind Farm.
The value of the Gode Wind 3 transaction is EUR 473 million (approx. DKK 3.5 billion), which comprises the price for the acquisition of the 50 % ownership share of the offshore wind farm and a commitment to fund 50 % of the construction of Gode Wind 3. Gode Wind 3 is expected to enter into commercial operation in 2024.
Peter Obling, Head of Central Europe at Ørsted, says:
“We continue to see strong investor interest for offshore wind farms, and we’re very pleased to once again welcome Glennmont as a co-owner of one of our German offshore wind farms. As the leading developer of offshore wind in Germany, Ørsted is committed to being a central part of the German Energiewende, and we’ll continue to work to support the green transformation in this strategic market.”
Francesco Cacciabue, CFO and Partner at Glennmont Partners from Nuveen, says:
”This third investment in German offshore wind with Ørsted continues and strengthens our successful partnership. Ørsted is a recognized leader in the offshore wind sector, and this acquisition underscores Glennmont’s strategy of investing in superior quality projects and developing long-term strategic partnerships with industry leaders.”
