Wind Energy – Troll Area
Equinor, with partners Petoro, TotalEnergies, Shell and ConocoPhillips in the Troll and Oseberg fields have initiated a study and are looking into possible options for building a 1 GW floating offshore wind farm in the Troll area some 65 kilometres west of Bergen, Norway.
With an annual production of 4.3 TWh and a 2027 startup, Trollvind could provide much of the electricity needed to run the Troll and Oseberg offshore fields through an onshore connection point and deliver extra power to the Bergen region.
“Trollvind is a concept where renewable energy works to facilitate several objectives: helping cut emissions through electrification, delivering power to an area where shortages have already created challenges for new industrial development, and Norway maintains its position as a leader in the industrialisation of floating offshore wind,” says our CEO Anders Opedal.
The project is now being further matured by the Troll and Oseberg partners, initiating feasibility studies aimed at an investment decision during 2023.
