Utsira Nord is the first floating wind project in Norway, and a potential springboard for a new industry era. Norwegian engineers are world leading within offshore installations and digital and sustainable solutions. A rapid development of Utsira Nord can bring Norway to a front-runner position in an exponentially growing international market. Utsira Nord can not only produce green energy, but create numerous new, green jobs and export opportunities across a broad value chain.
Through 180 years, Aker companies have created tens of thousands of Norwegian jobs, adapting to major market and technology transitions. For 125 years, Statkraft has been producing green electricity for Norwegian households and companies and is the leading European provider of renewable energy. Ocean Winds is the joint venture of global renewable giants, EDP Renewables and ENGIE, present in seven countries with fixed and floating offshore wind projects in all stages, from development to fully operating.
The combination of expertise from the three member of the consortium makes this an ideal partnership to develop floating offshore windfarms in Norwegian seas. We own and operate leading and field proven technology. At Utsira Nord, we are ready to further innovate, scale and industrialize to make floating wind a cost competitive source of green energy.
