Interim report for the first quarter of 2023 – strong start to the year with all-time high earnings from offshore sites and final investment decision on Greater Changhua 2b and 4
Ørsted A/S (Orsted)
Today, Ørsted’s Board of Directors approved the interim report for the first quarter of 2023.
Operating profit (EBITDA) for the first quarter was in line with our expectations and amounted to DKK 6.9 billion.
Earnings from our wind and solar assets in operation amounted to DKK 6.9 billion, which was an increase of DKK 2.2 billion compared to the same period last year.
Net profit amounted to DKK 3.2 billion, and return on capital employed (ROCE) came in at 14 %.
We maintain our EBITDA guidance of DKK 20-23 billion excluding earnings from new partnerships during the year. We also maintain our gross investment guidance of DKK 50-54 billion.
Mads Nipper, Group President and CEO of Ørsted, says in a comment to the interim financial report for the first quarter of 2023:
Among significant strategic milestones during the quarter, we took FID on our Greater Changhua 2b and 4 offshore wind farms in Taiwan with a total capacity of 920 MW. We expect to start onshore construction this year with commissioning by the end of 2025. Greater Changhua 2b and 4 have a robust business case, which will create long-term value for Ørsted.
Our 100 MW Salamander project, a joint venture between Simply Blue Group, Subsea 7, and Ørsted, won a Scottish floating wind lease and is a tangible step to making floating wind a reality. We also acquired the 160 MW early-stage Irish solar development project Garreenleen, which will bring our Irish portfolio to a total capacity of 576 MW.”
