In addition to our offshore wind presence in the UK, the US, Poland and Norway, we are present in the following markets:
We are a partner (25%) in the Arkona offshore windfarm in Germany, a 385 MW wind farm located in the Baltic Sea approximately 22 miles from the German coastline. The windfarm has a total of 60 turbines and delivers energy to ~400.000 households annually. The wind farm started production in 2019.
Japan has strong ambitions to grow within renewables. Equinor has therefore established a country office here to explore renewable and low carbon business opportunities and build our position within the Japanese offshore wind industry.
Donghae Windfarm project
Together with our partners Korean National Oil Company and East West Power, we have the ambition to develop a 200 MW floating offshore wind farm in South Korea.
Firefly Wind Farm project
Equinor has started conducting wind measurements needed to further look into the possibility of developing and constructing a potential 800MW floating offshore wind project off the coast of Ulsan in South Korea
Equinor, RES and Green Giraffe has joined forces and formed Océole, a partnership dedicated to developing floating offshore wind in France.
Establishing this partnership is in line with the three companies’ ambition of delivering high-performance floating offshore wind projects to support France’s targets of up to 6.8 GW offshore wind by 2028 on its path to become carbon neutral by 2050.
We have teamed up with Naturgyto jointly explore the potential for offshore wind in Spain.
The first Spanish offshore wind auction is expected to be in the Canary region early 2023 with a qualification process late 2022. Equinor and Naturgy are jointly assessing the opportunity to develop and construct the Floating Wind Canary Island Project (FOWCA) which could potentially be the first renewables project for Equinor in Spain.
With its long coastline and favorable wind conditions, Vietnam has among the best wind resources in Asia and a strong desire to develop an offshore wind market. Equinor has entered an MoU with PetroVietnam for future offshore wind opportunities.
Equinor opened a representative office in Hanoi in May 2022.
