Offshore wind

Offshore wind is a new focus area for Veidekke. The group has a clear ambition to become a key part of the value chain for floating offshore wind, and is already participating in a larger feasibility study to specifically look into how the floating foundations for the wind turbines best can be resolved.

The Government, through the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries, has in the Roadmap - The Green Industrial Initiative stated that Norway will become a leading nation in offshore wind with an industry that develops and builds state-of-the-art wind power solutions. Its ambition is to allocate areas with a potential for 30 gigawatts of offshore wind production on the Norwegian continental shelf by 2040.

To exploit the winds at sea, robust infrastructure is required in addition to turbines with foundations. Each individual foundation is estimated to have a concrete volume of around 5,000 m3 and 1,500 tons of reinforcement.

These are large structures that require a lot of know-how, quality, experience and ability to execute. Through a feasibility study, we will look into where in the value chain we can add the most value. We have unique concrete expertise in Veidekke, and particularly our Veidekke Interform department and their slipforming experience gives us a head start on this.
