Vestavind selects four firms for Norway's first offshore project

NORWAY: Norwegian developer Vestavind Offshore has selected four firms for the final round of the development of Norway's first large scale offshore wind farm project.

It announced a tender in September for the development of an industrial concept for an offshore wind farm at Sandøy on the north west coast of Norway.

The bidders will now have six months to develop their solutions further. They will be required to give details of the tower and its foundations, the turbine design and testing prior to installation.

Vestavind will then evaluate the proposals before selecting one or more groups for the front-end engineering design phase. It hopes to make a decision for investment in 12 month's time.

The four groups selected are:

  • Reinertsen AS (Norway) in cooperation with Vattenfall (Sweden)
  • Technip (France)
  • ViciVentus AS (Norway), a grouping consisting of AF Gruppen AS, Lyse AS and Dr. Techn. Olav Olsen AS
  • Westcon AS (Norway), in cooperation with amongst Kruse Smith AS, Norconsult AS and Eide Marine Services AS.
Vestavind Offshore is owned by a consortium of seven energy companies in Western Norway.
