Odfjell Oceanwind Secures Funding for Floating Wind Project


Norwegian State enterprise Enova is allocating 2bn Norwegian kroner (€175m) to the 75MW GoliatVIND floating offshore wind project at Hammerfest in Norway.

A total of seven players have submitted floating wind project proposals in the call for tenders and are currently being assessed by Enova.

GoliatVIND was ranked at the top of the competition. The scheme will install a floating offshore wind farm to deliver renewable electricity to the Hammerfest region via the Goliat platform in the Barents Sea. The Goliat platform is already electrified from shore.

GoliatVIND is owned and supported by three partners: Odfjell Oceanwind, Source Galileo and Kansai Electric Power Company.
