The UtsiraVIND Consortium, originated as a partnership between Odfjell Oceanwind, and Source Galileo, has been further strengthened with Kansai (Japan) and Ingka Investments (Sweden), the investment arm of Ingka Group, the largest IKEA retailer.
This expanded consortium will be bidding into the Utsira Nord floating offshore wind tender process in September 2023. The consortium will now seek to progress their bid in the upcoming Utsira tender process to develop, build and operate a floating wind park on Utsira Nord using Odfjell Oceanwind’s proprietary solutions. The Utsira Nord seabed lies 32km offshore in the North Sea where floating wind turbines in water depths of 180 to 280m are foreseen to be developed in the first round for a total capacity of 1.5GW.
