Orsted made its UK managing director redundant at the beginning of December, in addition to two other senior executives, including Thyge Boserup, senior vice president of global development.
The Telegraph can reveal that Orsted is shifting its focus towards its corporate customers, resulting in the redundancies of around 15 employees in its Danish and German offices, as the wind farm operator mulls further cuts to its UK and Sweden offices.
“We are refocusing our business to continue our global expansion and as a result, we have had to make some changes to the management structure of some business units,” the company said. It added that some roles were “no longer consistent with this new focus.”
“Unfortunately, the changes mean that we have to say goodbye to some of our skilled employees.”
In October, Orsted’s share price fell by more than 7pc when it warned that its wind farms were producing less power than expected. The company blamed this dip in production on the fact that wind turbines block each others wind, thereby decreasing its efficiency.

Plans for offshore windfarms off the Suffolk coast have not been thought through adequately, says Suffolk County Council. Among the issues raised were the visual impact on the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, impact on tourism, the severe effects on the village of Friston, doubts about the planting mitigation, noise and disturbance on communities and road networks.
