    New alliance to take position in Norwegian offshore wind

    Parkwind and NorSea have established an alliance with the intention to apply in the license round for offshore wind acreages in Norway, according to the company's release.

    With Parkwind the alliance brings extensive competence, network and value chain experience, through 10 years of experience in developing, financing, constructing and operating offshore wind farms in the European market.

    With its focus on local value creation and content, the alliance will strengthen the Stavanger region's ambitions and position as Norway’s energy capital.

    “Our project will be run through a Norwegian company with headquarters and operations based in the Stavanger-region. We will benefit from NorSea's 55 years of experience in the Norwegian offshore industry, as well as our valuable insights from other wind ventures both in the NorSea group and Parkwind’s extensive portfolio”, says John E. Stangeland, CEO of NorSea.

    In addition to Parkwind and NorSea, the Wilhelmsen group as NorSea’s majority shareholder, is an active contributor to the alliance.

    The alliance’s combination of strong local industrial position together with extensive experience in offshore wind development, makes a considerable value-creation opportunity for all stakeholders.
