Source Galileo and Odfjell Oceanwind are collaborating with Vår Energi on a floating offshore wind project at the Goliat platform outside Hammerfest in Norway. The partnership has now been further strengthened with Japanese Utility, The Kansai Electric Power Company (Kansai), joining the team.

Kansai’s role is to contribute actively with their expertise and technical competence within interfaces and high-voltage systems, as well as their experience with procurement and financial planning. Kansai dispatches three engineers and one commercial specialist from Osaka who will join Source Galileo Norway's head office in Haugesund. The offshore wind park will be connected to the Goliat platform, utilising the existing power cable to shore. Currently, there are plans for five floating wind turbines of 15 MW each. The park is planned to be in operation in 2027, depending on how the licensing process is laid out by the Ministry of Oil and Energy.
