D.E. Shaw, which got its start via a $28 million stake from former Maine Today Media owner S. Donald Sussman strikes again.
Orsted, the Danish company that is the world’s largest offshore wind developer, has agreed to pay $510 million to buy Rhode Island-based Deepwater Wind, the company that two years ago built the first offshore wind farm in the United States, a five-turbine array near Block Island.
Chellie Pingree was married to S. Donald Sussman, largest media owner in Maine whose media almost always fail to report on the cons of wind. It turns out we learn that all along, he had been the person who gave First Wind's longtime owner, hedge fund D.E. Shaw its start with a $28 million stake.
