Offshore wind has the potential to become Norway’s new export adventure, and we see more and more companies exploring opportunities to engage in offshore wind. Many companies have a strong technology and competence basis combined with a long track record from oil & gas, but these backbone elements are not necessarily enough to succeed in the global and rapidly developing offshore wind industry.
