Deep Wind Offshore


Deep Wind Offshore is the power company of the future, developing a truly sustainable source of new electricity: powered by offshore wind, balanced by Norwegian hydropower.


Utsira Nord
Utsira Nord is located west of Haugesund, and is suited for floating wind turbines, the offshore wind technology with the largest predicted growth rate. The area is ideally located far enough offshore to harness some of the worlds best wind resources, whilst well within reach of a cost efficient power transfer system. The onshore grid is well suited for incorporating and balancing new renewable energy produced at scale, hence provide opportunities to decarbonize exciting offshore and onshore industries as well as empowering the growth of new industries. The south-west coast of Norway has a diversified and sophisticated supply chain, well positioned for delivering most of the products and services needed.

Sørlige Nordsjø II
Sørlige Nordsjø II borders the Danish sector in the North Sea, relatively close to the UK and continental Europe. The area is well suited for developments of scale, and has the potential of offering another opportunity for Norway to deliver also renewable energy to Europe, balanced by Norwegian hydropower. An energy project of scale will provide opportunities for variety of industries such as petroleum, the maritime sector, the renewable industries as well as the supply chain.

This area can make Norway a leading provider of renewable energy to a whole continent, and Norwegian products and services to a global market.
