Aker Offshore Wind (AOW), Ocean Winds and Statkraft have joined forces to bid into Norway’s flagship offshore wind licensing round, the latest team to enter the race for development of commercial-scale projects off the Nordic country.

The three-way partnership, which aims to covers “the full value chain from development to delivery of offshore green energy to market”, aims to both operate a future floating wind plant in the northerly Utsira Nord area in the Norwegian North Sea as well the associated power infrastructure.
