Magnora Offshore Wind, a partnership between Magnora and TechnipFMC, has announced the submission of two applications for the first round of seabed leasing through the Scottish government’s ScotWind Leasing programme.

The joint venture stated it has worked with the local supply chain to ensure that concepts can be realised with local sustainable solutions, which will benefit the local economies for the next decades.

Torstein Sanness, Executive Chairman of Magnora, said: “In Magnora, you find some of the world’s leading experts within wind development. Coupled with TechnipFMC’s project management expertise and extensive service and technology portfolio, we believe we can provide a market-leading floating offshore wind offering.”

Magnora owns offshore wind, onshore wind, and solar PV development projects, and supports the development of solar energy technologies. In addition, Magnora Offshore Wind intends to participate in the first offshore wind application round in Norway.

Technip is a subsea oil and gas systems provider and worked with clients and partners to develop Deep Purple, a system that uses wind energy to extract green hydrogen from seawater. The system consists of offshore wind turbines and offshore hydrogen technologies for the production, storage and transportation energy in the form of pressurized green hydrogen. It can also be used to produce, store and deliver hydrogen to consumers at sea or exported in a pipeline to shore.
