Minister of Petroleum and Energy Terje Aasland has presented the framework for allocating the areas in Utsira Nord and the first phase of Sørlige Nordsjø II and asks for the industry’s input in the public consultation within 6 January.

The Government wants a close dialogue with the offshore wind industry and other users of the sea when the tender documents for Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II are to be drawn up, and wants input on, among other things, pre-qualification, auction model and support scheme, according to a press release of 6 December.

– We are confident that many players from the ocean industry will respond to this ask with a lot of of smart advise and recommendations, Stoltz ends.
