Dong plans to invest billions in the construction of two offshore wind farms, Gode Wind 1 and 2, in the German part of the North Sea. The company has decided to spend around USD 2.9 billion on constructing the parks, says the company in a press release.

"The investment in the 582 MW Gode Wind projects will be our biggest ever and will cement our leadership position in offshore wind. Being constructed in an area with good wind and soil conditions, relatively close to shore and in a cluster where we can harvest synergies from other offshore wind projects, the Gode Wind projects provide a sound business case for DONG Energy,” says Executive Vice President Samuel Leupold, who is responsible for DONG Energy’s wind power activities.
