OSLO, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Norway’s oil and energy ministry is considering three areas for an offshore wind tender planned for 2025, which is part of its wider goal to develop 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind by 2040, it said on Thursday.
The ministry has tasked the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), the country’s energy regulator, with evaluating three sites off Norway’s south and west coasts, it said.
In April, NVE recommended 20 areas suitable for deploying offshore wind farms, but said only two of these – Soervest F and Vestavind F – would be ready for 2025.
These two areas incorporate the sites of Norway’s first tender locations at Soerlige Norsjoe II, close to the sea border with Denmark, and Utsira Nord, off the south-west coast near the city of Haugesund.
In addition, NVE has now been asked to start a strategic impact assessment of Vestavind B, an area located off the west coast near the city of Bergen.
