25 delegates from Agder attended WindEurope Bilbao. Even more Agder representatives are expected to travel to WindEnergy Hamburg.

“Building on our Bilbao experience, we will be heading for the Hamburg event in late September. The opportunities in offshore wind are tremendous, and I am pleased to see that the Agder is standing together to present the region to potential operators,” says Isabelle-Louise Aabel, EU Advisor at GCE NODE.

25 people from Agder, including the Mayor of Kristiansand, the County Mayor, organizations, and GCE NODE companies, travelled to Bilbao in April to meet with leading European operators of offshore wind. The Agder project Fremtidens havvind had its own stand at the event, several Agder companies had meetings with the largest offshore wind operators, and some were given time on the center stage to present their technology and competence.

“Agder is the ideal location for a base serving Sørlige Nordsjø II, which is the southernmost location in the upcoming Norwegian licensing round. We also have a well-functioning supplier industry, which we will make sure to display in Hamburg,” says Aabel.

“We invite more GCE NODE companies to travel with us to Hamburg. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the offshore wind industry, and to get to know the major players,” says Aabel.

GCE NODE and Fremtidens Havvind will have a special program for the Agder delegation to ensure a useful and productive trip to Hamburg. Be part of Team Agder and the Norwegian pavilion!

“We are looking forward to presenting competence and technology from Agder to the major European wind players, and to showcase the excellent cooperation between the industry and county and municipality officials”, says Aabel.
