Ørsted UK O&M Facility

Ørsted UK O&M Facility

We installed the electrical systems for an Operations & Maintenance Facility for the client, Ørsted UK, the global leader in offshore wind. The purpose of the facility is to provide both of Ørsted UK’s offshore windfarms in the area, the Burbo Bank wind farm and the Burbo Bank Extension.

Ørsted was recently rebranded from its previous name - DONG Energy, standing for Danish Oil & Natural Gas. The new name, Ørsted represents its focus on renewable technology. The building is located at Kings Wharf, Birkenhead, with a view of the award-winning Mersey waterfront.

Burbo Bank Extension is able to power over 230,000 homes using 32 of the world’s largest, most powerful wind turbines. These were installed in 2016 in an area covering 40km2 in Liverpool Bay.

The building is used for the storage of materials and equipment required for the ongoing maintenance of the wind farm. It also has office facilities and parking for staff and access to the River Mersey.

The facility comprises a storage warehouse along with office space, changing rooms, and welfare and ancillary facilities across two floors, providing Ørsted UK with a base for 45 full-time staff.
