Having visited the port facilities in Mandal only two weeks prior, Minister Terje Aasland was well familiar with the plans and ambitions for Windport in the Mandal region.
“There may be opportunities for us to meet more often in the future,” said Aasland, shaking the hand of Global Ocean Technology’s CEO, Øystein Sunde Pedersen.
Equinor, RWE Renewables and Hydro Rein jointly aim to develop a large-scale bottom-fixed offshore wind farm in the Sørlige Nordsjø II area in the North Sea. Windport AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Global Ocean Technology, aim to provide port facilities for the development and construction phase of the wind farm. In the agreement signed with Windport AS, the parties have agreed to exchange and discuss information to assess feasibility for a potential industrial development, related to such port facilities.
“We really appreciate that both the Minister and Deputy Minister Andreas Bjelland Eriksen came by today,” says Tom Fidjeland, CEO of GCE NODE.
