RWE, NTE and Havfram have signed a collaboration agreement. Together, the three companies intend to participate in the Norwegian government’s tender process for floating offshore wind energy, which will begin later this year.
By 2030, Norway aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 to 55 per cent compared to 1990 levels, whilst at the same time promoting green growth. The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has designated a new area for this purpose: Utsira Nord, located around 30 kilometres off the coast of Norway west of the island of Svendsholmen, offers the opportunity to build up to 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of new floating offshore capacity. Havfram is a Norwegian subsea and offshore wind contractor with a global footprint, with subsidiaries in the US, the UK and others. NTE, owned by 19 municipalities in Trøndelag in central Norway, is a producer of renewable energy in Norway.
