Offshore wind

Science Meets Industry Bergen

Academics and professionals from the business community and the public sector got together to exchange new knowledge and ideas 25 October at the conference organised by Bergen Offshore Wind Centre (BOW), NORCE, and GCE Ocean Technology.

Is it possible to speed it up while retaining good practice?

The topic of this year’s conference was the speed and volume of the offshore wind energy development in Norwegian waters.

Elisabeth Sæther, State Secretary, the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (OED) opened the Conference and several companies presented their plans and concepts for offshore wind development in Norway and internationally.

This was followed by a panel dialogue:  3 GW in Norwegian waters before 2030 – what does it take? , with Atle Blomgren (NORCE) , Sigrid Eskeland Schütz (UiB) and Jan Fredrik Stadaas (Equinor).

Research and education are critical to achieve profitable offshore wind projects in Norwegian waters, and several of the EOV partners gave presentations , for instance; 

Etienne Cheynet , University of Bergen displayed research on wind and wave conditions in the Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II.
