20 Jun 2019

The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy of Norway is considering opening the area of Utsira Nord outside the coast of Rogaland and on the southern area of Sørlige Nordsjø II for applications on floating offshore wind. Up to 3,500 MW of offshore wind capacity could be developed, since the Utsira Nord area could hold a total capacity of 500 to 1,500 MW, while the Sørlige Nordsjø II could hold between 1,000 and 2,000 MW. The latter, which is located near Denmark, could be connected to the European power network and export electricity.
