Equinor, RWE and Hydro to develop large-scale offshore wind farm in Norway

28 May 2021

Equinor, RWE Renewables and Hydro REIN have reached a collaboration agreement to jointly develop a large-scale offshore wind farm in Norway.

The partners intend to prepare and file an application with the Norwegian authorities to develop a bottom-fixed offshore wind farm in the Sørlige Nordsjø II region in the Norwegian North Sea.

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has opened two areas, including Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II, for the development of offshore renewables, and is working on the licensing process for them.

The partnership between Equinor, RWE and Hydro combines experience and expertise in offshore wind development, energy market insight and large-scale industrial project execution.

Both Equinor and RWE have previously partnered to jointly develop the 385MW Arkona offshore wind farm in the German part of the Baltic Sea.

Hydro has been one of the world’s largest corporate buyers of renewable power over the last few years, and has played an important role in wind power development in Norway and Sweden.
