RES has commenced development activities in two new offshore wind markets: Norway and Australia. In Norway, RES and Zephyr have established a new consortium, Siravind, to bid for one of the three areas in the Utsira Nord offshore wind tender process.
The area under consideration will utilise floating wind technology and deliver approximately 500MW. The tender was announced by The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in March and bids are due to be submitted in September 2023. The three areas at Utsira Nord have a total installed capacity of 1.5 GW and plan to be operational by 2030, supporting the Norwegian Government’s vision of 30GW of offshore by 2040.
In Australia, RES is exploring a number of areas along the Australian coast and in particular looking at sites off the southern coast of Victoria in the Gippsland area.
