The political delegation from Agder will have representatives from Lindesnes and Kristiansand municipalities, Agder county, NHO Agder, Business Region Kristiansand, Kristiansand Chamber of Commerce, and the University of Agder.
“It is vital to have the political side join this trip, as it will provide an understanding of how politicians can assist in developing the Norwegian offshore wind industry. This particularly applies to the Agder region, where companies are amid transferring competence and technology from oil and gas to offshore wind,” says Rune Klausen, Project Manager Offshore Wind at GCE NODE.
Global Ocean Technology, Umoe Mandal, Origo Solutions, Agder Energi and GCE NODE are represented on the business side of the delegation. They will meet with the industry and the Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy.
Being part of Team Norway in Bilbao will give access to the seminars, the minister, and the major operators and will also provide insights into the imminent concession round outside the Canary Islands.
