Ørsted turned itself into a completely green energy system-based company. To achieve its goal, it relies on digital strategy that includes advance analytics and artificial intelligence with Microsoft technology by using a software that helps transform data into insights for predictive maintenance.
Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted develops, constructs and operates offshore wind farms that provide power to 11.3 million people, roughly a quarter of the world’s offshore wind market.

The wind farms are part of the global leader’s shift away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy. Ørsted divested its upstream oil and gas business in 2017 and has reduced its coal consumption by 82 percent in the last decade. It plans to fully phase out coal by 2023 and wants to increase its offshore wind capacity to 15 gigawatts by 2025 – enough to power more than 30 million people.
“Our vision is to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.” - Ørsted CIO Michael Biermann
To reach its goals, Ørsted relies on a digital strategy that includes advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) with Microsoft technology. The software helps the company transform data from its 1,300 offshore wind turbines into insights for predictive maintenance that saves time and resources.
