Norway: TotalEnergies, Iberdrola and Norsk Havvind join forces for offshore wind development

Stavanger, Paris and Madrid, November 3rd 2021 — TotalEnergies, Iberdrola and Norsk Havvind have joined forces to respond to the Norwegian authorities' call for tenders for the development of floating and bottom-fixed wind projects for a cumulated capacity of 4.5 GW at two offshore sites in southern Norway.

The consortium will leverage in its offer the proven technical expertise of its members in both bottom fixed and floating offshore wind, as well as its in-depth knowledge of the challenges, territories and stakeholders in Norway. Besides, on successful award, the consortium will focus on strengthening the local industrial competencies and ensuring the successful development of the Norwegian offshore wind supply chain.

 “Investering i energiprosjekter i Norge og Nordsjøen har vært kjernen i TotalEnergies historie i flere tiår, spesielt i utviklingen av offshoreindustrien. Som et globalt multi-energiselskap er TotalEnergies derfor glade for å slå seg sammen med Iberdrola og Norsk Havvind for å utvikle Norges store havvindpotensiale sier Olivier Terneaud, VP offshore wind at TotalEnergies. “Energiomstillingen skyter fart og Norge, med sine vindressurser i verdensklasse, er et flott sted å investere i ny energi.”

 “Denne avtalen i Norge passer med Iberdrolas strategi om å befeste sin posisjon som verdens største selskap innen fornybar energi, og bygger videre på tidligere transaksjoner og investeringer i havvind som selskapet har utført de siste årene. Vi ser et godt langsiktig potensial for havvindprosjekter i det norske markedet og er fast bestemt på å styrke kompetansen og forsyningskjeden til havvindindustrien i Nordsjøen” sier David Rowland, Offshore Wind Business Development Director at Iberdrola.

“Sammen med våre partnere Iberdrola og TotalEnergies vil vi jobbe hardt for å utvikle den norske havvindindustrien, redusere utslipp og skape nye arbeidsplasser for den norske forsyningskjeden” sier Peder Sortland, CEO at Norsk Havvind.
