The Sørlige Nordsjø II project represents a critical step towards Norway’s ambitious goal of awarding 30 GW of offshore wind power by 2040. With the first turbines expected to be operational by 2030, this 1.5GW wind farm will play a crucial role in advancing the country’s renewable energy transition.

Jorne Bluekens, Project Manager at Ventyr, said:

“We are thrilled to have secured the winning bid for the Sørlige Nordsjø II project. This achievement underscores our commitment to driving positive change through renewable energy innovation. We look forward to working closely with our partners and stakeholders to bring this project to fruition and deliver tangible benefits to the local community.”

Ventyr is committed to delivering innovative and sustainable energy solutions. The cutting-edge and lean project concept focuses on maximizing efficiency while minimizing environmental impact.

The project places a strong emphasis on local ripple effects, ensuring that communities in the vicinity of the wind farm benefit from economic opportunities and job creation. Through strategic partnerships and community engagement, we are dedicated to fostering long-term prosperity and growth in the region. NorSea Group in Norway, one of the strategic partners of the project, is ready to play an important role in ensuring that it brings positive impacts to local communities.

“In NorSea we are proud and excited to be a partner in this winning project. We are looking forward to supporting the consortium with NorSea’s experience gained through six decades of offshore industry and convert this into a new energy and industry chapter for Norway, creating jobs and building competence”,

says John E. Stangeland, CEO in NorSea.

”This is an important milestone in Norway’s offshore wind journey, and Parkwind is proud to be playing a key role in the development of Sørlige Nordsjø. We have a long track record of delivering successful offshore wind farms in the North Sea and look forward to bringing a new clean energy project to life in Norwegian waters”,

said François Van Leeuw, co-CEO of Parkwind.

As part of a EUR 7.5 billion initiative to support of 100 percent renewable energy consumption across the value chain and beyond, Ingka Investments has invested and committed more than EUR 4 billion into renewable energy projects in wind and solar power. Out of the EUR 7.5 billion initiative, EUR 1 billion is committed to investments in innovation and transitional technologies, such as energy storage, hydrogen as energy carrier or grid infrastructure.

”We are delighted about the results of this first Norwegian auction. This is yet another investment that will enable a climate footprint reduction well beyond our retail consumption and into the IKEA value chain, and also support the transition to a renewable future. Offshore wind has a huge potential to contribute to Europe’s decarbonised energy goals, and we are looking forward to the next steps of this partnership”,

said Frederik de Jong, Head of Renewable Energy at Ingka Investments.
