Orsted said Friday it had reached an agreement with Brookfield Renewable to purchase a 100% equity interest in the latter’s Irish and U.K. onshore wind business, Brookfield Renewable Ireland.

Orsted said the deal would see it enter Europe’s onshore market. In 2014 the company, which was then known as DONG Energy, divested its last activities in onshore wind to focus on the offshore sector.
