BERGEN/HAUGESUND, NorwayOdfjell Oceanwind has signed a memorandum of understanding with Source Galileo Norge to jointly develop floating wind parks using Odfjell Oceanwind’s technologies.

Their targets are wind parks for the electrification of offshore oil and gas installations, the Utsira Nord seabed development in the Norwegian North Sea, and selected floating wind park elsewhere offshore Europe.

They plan to apply for a seabed lease for the UtsiraVIND project at Utsira Nord, using Odfjell Oceanwind’s proprietary solutions and suppliers for industrial production of floating offshore wind units.

Odfjell Oceanwind CEO Per Lund said, “During recent months, we have had dialogues with several consortia that intend to apply for seabed leases in the Utsira Nord area. These discussions have confirmed that our solutions are suitable and attractive for floating wind parks in general.

“Source Galileo and its management have already developed several offshore wind parks…The connection to the European renewable energy platform Galileo provides the opportunity to realize major offshore wind parks like UtsiraVIND."

Galileo, a company formed to develop, own and operate large renewable energy sites across Europe, has long-term investment support from Infrati, Morrison & Co Infrastructure Fund, Commonwealth Superannuation Corp and New Zealand Superannuation Fund.
