    Norway : Five principles for the development of the Norwegian offshore wind industry

    June 9, 2022 - TendersInfo - News


      Together with the parties in working life, the government has developed five principles for how they will shape a new industry for Norway in offshore wind.

      Norway will become one of the world's leading nations in offshore wind

      The government will contribute with long-term goals and predictable framework conditions. Active business policy that plays on a team with industry, contributes knowledge, tools to trigger capital that complements the market and fast processing time. Norway has particularly great opportunities to develop industry within floating offshore wind that can provide new industrial opportunities.

      The offshore wind industry will be developed according to the Norwegian model

      We will develop an industry that offers security for and at work, and emphasize orderly pay and working conditions. Norwegian professionals are crucial for the development of a new industry, and the trust and cooperation between the parties in working life makes us one of the most competitive offshore environments in the world. A successful industrial investment in offshore wind in Norway will ensure that technology and expertise built up around the oil and gas industry, the renewable energy industry and the maritime sector can be further developed and form the basis for value creation and jobs as petroleum activity on the Norwegian shelf gradually decreases.

      We will develop an offshore wind industry that will contribute to more jobs at sea and in the supplier industry

      We will expand offshore wind through regular announcements and allocations, to provide long-term perspective and activity to Norwegian shipyards and suppliers over time. Together with Norwegian professionals and companies, we will build a value chain for offshore wind, with a competitive supplier industry that can take market shares in the offshore wind market internationally. The first allocations on Utsira North and Southern North Sea II will provide an important learning arena.

      The offshore wind industry will contribute with power that enables new green industry on land

      The need for power in Norway and Europe is great, and a large-scale investment will be an important contribution to the climate goals in Norway and Europe. The government has presented an ambition to allocate areas for offshore wind production in Norway that can provide up to 30,000 MW by 2040. This is a size that corresponds to almost as much power as Norwegian hydropower produces today. Offshore wind, together with existing Norwegian renewable production, can be a catalyst in the development of other industries and other energy production such as hydrogen and batteries. A development of power from offshore wind will also take place in collaboration with the oil and gas industry, which needs power for selected projects, as is already being done today.

      The offshore wind industry must be sustainable and built in good coexistence with other offshore industries

      Norway has a long tradition of living off and harvesting from the sea. An ambitious investment in offshore wind must take place in collaboration with existing industries that harvest from the sea. This means that we must build new solutions quickly, while at the same time safeguarding biodiversity. Thorough environmental surveys and comprehensive management must form the basis for further work.
