New member of the American Danish Business Council, DONG Energy has officially launched its entry into the United States.
September 21st, Ambassador Lars Gert Lose launched the beginning of an exciting new business venture for the Danish energy-company DONG Energy. Traditionally, DONG Energy is one of Northern Europe’s foremost suppliers of offshore wind power.
The launch event took place at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Boston (MA), where many prominent personalities, stakeholders and companies were present. Governor Baker of Massachusetts spoke and welcomed Dong to the States. Samuel Leupold, Executive Vice President, DONG Energy Wind Power, participated in unveiling the new player in the US offshore wind energy market; Bay State Wind.
In his speech the ambassador highlighted this exciting new venture by saying;
I am confident that this type of technology and know-how will be of great value in any country. Also here in the United States.
The amazing accomplishments that Denmark has achieved within offshore wind are, in no small part, thanks to Danish companies like DONG Energy and their innovative technologies.
I therefore wish DONG Energy all the best in this new and exciting endeavor. I hope that the launch event will be the first of many successes here.
