Odfjell Oceanwind, together with its partners Source Galileo Norge and Kansai Electric Power Company, has received 2 billion nok (approximately 190 million usd) in capex grant for the GoliatVIND project. GoliatVIND is a 75 MW demonstration project for floating offshore wind. The project has selected Odfjell Oceanwind’s Deepsea Star™ semisubmersible foundation technology and will use Odfjell Oceanwind’s supply chain.

«This grant is a breakthrough for Odfjell Oceanwind and our technologies and is an important step towards us demonstrating the Deepsea Star(TM) with 15 MW turbines. The award is a result of a great team effort from all three partners in the consortium. It also demonstrates the Government’s continued commitment to let Norwegian companies lead the way in the global floating offshore wind market», says CEO of Odfjell Oceanwind Per Lund.
