Sørlige Norsjø II (3GW) – Norway
Sørlige Nordsjø II offshore wind field (Southern North Sea II) lies in the North Sea offshore Norway and at the Danish border, as shown in the map, in water depths of 53 – 70 m where both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind turbines could be an option.
The distance to the mainland Norway is about 140 km, however there might be options to export the electricity to other countries as part of the development strategy.
The initial development is 3000 MW (3 GW) and there are 3 off concessions for the field.
Utsira Nord (1.5 GW) – Norway
The Utsira Nord offshore wind farm field lies in the North Sea offshore Norway and west of the island of Utsira, as shown on the map, in water depths of 185 m – 280 m where floating offshore wind turbines is the only feasible foundation option and is hence suitable for generating renewable floating wind power.
The distance to the Utsira island is only 12 to 32 km and the turbines will be visible from the shore.
The initial development is 1500 MW (1.5 GW) and there are probably more than 3 off concessions available as the purpose for the field is to develop and mature offshore floating wind technology.
Ulsan – South Korea
South Korea announced plans to invest USD 32.1bn in the construction of the world’s largest offshore wind park on floating foundations.
The complex is expected to be built by 2030 off the coast of Ulsan City and will have a total capacity of 6 GW.
Long Wind Project – Montenegro
The Long Wind project in Montenegro has the potential capacity of 1GW of floating offshore wind.
