Tuesday at noon, Ørsted launches a most noteworthy triple-stage rocket – a rocket that has not only exploded into magnificent colors, but has also turned out to be something of a dud that caused the utility's share price to slide by around 10 percent. Ørsted downgrades its long-term return guidance to 7-8 percent from 7.5-8.5 percent and sets off to cut costs totaling DKK 500-600 million for the period 2020-'22.

In part that developing projects in the US has turned out to be more expensive than anticipated after the acquisition of Deepwater Wind, especially due to the price of a transmission facility.
