TotalEnergies, Iberdrola and Norsk Havvind form offshore wind alliance

TotalEnergies, Iberdrola and Norsk Havvind have joined forces to respond to the Norwegian authorities' call for proposals 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.

"Investing in energy projects in Norway and the North Sea has been at the heart of TotalEnergies' history for several decades, especially in developing the offshore industry. As a global multi-energy company, TotalEnergies is therefore delighted to join forces with Iberdrola and Norsk Havvind to develop Norway's great offshore wind potential”,
said Olivier Terneaud, VP offshore wind at TotalEnergies. “The energy transition is gathering speed and Norway, with its world-class wind resources, is a great place to invest in new energy”.

“This agreement in Norway fits with Iberdrola's strategy to consolidate its position as the world's largest renewable energy company and builds on previous transactions and investments in offshore wind carried out by the company in recent years. We see very good long-term potential for offshore wind projects in the Norwegian market and are determined to strengthen skills and the supply chain in the North Sea offshore wind industry,”
said David Rowland, Offshore Wind Business Development Director at Iberdrola.

“Together with our partners Iberdrola and TotalEnergies we will work hard to develop the Norwegian offshore wind industry, reduce emissions and create new jobs for the Norwegian supply chain”,
said Peder Sortland, CEO at Norsk Havvind.

TotalEnergies is already developing a portfolio of offshore wind projects with a total capacity of more than 6 GW. These projects are located in the United Kingdom (
Seagreen, Outer Dowsing, Erebus), South Korea (Bada), Taiwan (Yunlin), and France (Eolmed). The company has also been qualified to participate in competitive tenders in the US, UK, France, Denmark and Norway.

Norsk Havvind is a newly formed independent project developer for offshore wind. The company is majority owned by Valinor. Valinor, through its subsidiary Norsk Vind, has experience developing onshore wind parks in Norway.

Iberdroa has over 1,300 MW of offshore wind capacity installed, which includes
Wikinger, East Anglia ONE and West of Duddon Sands, and a further 2,600 MW under construction. Its projects are being progressed and developed in the UK, United States, Germany, France, Sweden, Japan, Poland, Denmark, Taiwan and Ireland.
