As the Norwegian offshore wind market is about to open, the State Secretary at the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy commended the Norwegian offshore wind industry.

“2022 was a record-year for Norwegian offshore wind. I am impressed by what you have achieved without a home market,” said Andreas Bjelland Eriksen, addressing the Team Norway delegation at WindEurope Copenhagen Wednesday.

Eriksen was the introductory speaker at a speed pitching event in which 40 Norwegian companies had one minute to present themselves to an enthusiastic audience.
