Aarsleff's history

1947 – enterprising Danish engineer Per Aarsleff, aged 29, established a contracting company, which over the next several dozen years has developed into a renowned international concern, one of the leaders of the advanced engineering works. Nowadays the Company employs nearly 4,000 people and its revenue amounts to EUR 1 billion.

2003 – opening of 166MW Nysted Offshore Wind Farm (Rødsand), erected by Aarsleff. Until 2007, it had been the largest enterprise of this kind in the world. Since then the Company has consistently developed leading position in the wind energy sector and reliable know-how. In 2012, Aarsleff, as partner of the Consortium with Bilfinger Berger Ingenieurbau, constructed the world’s largest offshore wind plant (London Array) with a capacity of 630MW.

2008-2009 – construction of foundations for the National Stadium in Warsaw – the first very large commercial construction project in Poland.

2009-2010 – construction of foundations for  Overpass E of the Southern By-pass of Gdańsk – the longest bridge structure in Poland.

2010-2013 – construction of Europe’s  longest breakwater – LNG terminal in Świnoujście – the first very extensive offshore project in Poland.

2013-2014 – construction of two navigation beacons on the approach waterway to the port of Świnoujście – Poland’s longest permanent structure off the shore.
