WEST OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A Danish energy company is moving forward with plans to build a $20 million operations and maintenance facility in West Ocean City.

Orsted builds and operates renewable energy projects and is planning to make Ocean City a strategic location for the offshore wind industry. The company said in a news release Friday that construction will create up to 110 temporary and permanent jobs in the eastern Maryland region. The facility will service Orsted’s 120-megawatt offshore wind project that will power 40,000 homes in the region.

The company says it will generate $225 million in economic investment in Maryland, and create nearly 1,400 jobs statewide.
