Ørsted joins consortium with Fred. Olsen Renewables and Hafslund Eco establishing a long-term partnership to develop offshore wind in Norway and to compete in Norway's upcoming application round for offshore wind areas.
The three parties see the cooperation as the perfect fit for realising large-scale offshore wind projects in combination with an offshore grid. The consortium has the aim to deliver both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind power, while developing the Norwegian supply chain for the expected large-scale build-out of offshore wind in Norway and in Europe. Ørsted, Hafslund Eco and Fred. Olsen Renewables will be equal partners in the consortium which will be applying for licenses in both areas appointed by the Norwegian government, Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II. The upcoming allocation round is expected to consist of up to 4.5GW across the two areas.
