Green Light for Hywind Tampen Floating Offshore Wind Farm

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Industry has approved the plans to develop and operate the floating offshore wind farm Hywind Tampen for the Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms.

It's a pioneering project with a twist: a floating offshore wind farm will reduce the use of gas turbines on offshore platforms in Norway that produce oil and gas, as the company Equinor announced. This will reduce CO2 emissions from the platforms by more than 200,000 tons per year, which is equivalent to the annual emissions of 100,000 private cars. However, the extraction of fossil energy reserves will continue.

“Hywind Tampen is a pioneering project and a central contribution to reducing emissions from Gullfaks and Snorre, and I am pleased that both ESA and Norwegian authorities have approved the project. We are experiencing very challenging times, and we are focusing on continuing our transition effort while attending to and developing the value on the Norwegian continental shelf and at the same time reducing the climate footprint from our operations,” says Arne Sigve Nylund, Equinor’s executive vice president for Development & Production Norway.
