Ørsted is planning to issue green senior bonds in the UK to finance its green energy investments up to 2025, the utility informs in a press release

This includes investment in offshore wind farm Hornsea 2, which will have a total capacity of 1,386 MW.

"The purpose of the transactions is primarily to extend the duration of Ørsted A/S’ senior debt maturity profile and if successfully placed to refinance the existing 4.875 percent EUR 500m hybrid capital securities issued in 2013, which has its first par call date on July 8, 2018," Ørsted writes.

Barclays Bank PLC, Goldman Sachs International, Morgan Stanley & Co. International PLC and NatWest Market PLC are nominated as joint bookrunnners for issuing the bonds.

The green bonds' final scope and price will be decided as soon as the book-building process closes, Ørsted informs.
