Hornsea Project Two Offshore Wind Farm

31 Aug 2022: Update 31st August 2022: Ørsted has confirmed that the wind farm is now fully operational. It brings the company's UK pipeline of installed offshore wind farms to 6.2 GW. Update 2nd August 2022 : Event delayed to the end of August or until a fully commissioned announcement is made by the developers. Update May 2022: According to Orsteds financial results high winds in February and April delayed commissioning activities and slow progress of commissioning during March and April, owing to supply chain quality issues, which have required a significant amount of time troubleshooting. COD now expected later in the summer. Update February 2022: the accelerating Omicron variant infection rates over the winter meant that it was not possible to man the vessels used for commissioning work according to plan. As a consequence, the ramp-up profile will be delayed but orsted still expect to commission Hornsea 2 in H1 2022. The project is scheduled for completion during H1 2022.
