Wind Energy – Development
Equinor and RWE are to continue their collaboration on the development of bottom-fixed offshore wind farm in the Sørlige Nordsjø 2 after Hydro Rein decided not to participate in this competition round.
Together, Equinor and RWE have significant experience and expertise in developing offshore wind both in Norway and international markets.
Hydro Rein’s decision will not affect the progress of the application for pre-qualification or preparations for an auction for acreage in the SN2 later.
Hydro Rein has justified its decision by saying that it will be setting other priorities in its portfolio and that the decision not to participate in the Norwegian auction is based on an overall assessment.
The authorities have been informed of Hydro Rein’s decision and the change will not affect Equinor and RWE’s application for pre-qualification on the SN2.
