Offshore Norge are increasing their activities within offshore wind. Meet the new director Roger Pedersen at Ocean Connect to learn more about their plans and ambitions.

– The government wants to maintain high activity on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Offshore wind is a great opportunity and a natural development for the offshore industry in the decades to come, says Roger Pedersen, newly appointed director for offshore wind in Offshore Norge.

– I see great opportunities for the Norwegian offshore industry and I very much look forward to take part in the debate at Ocean Connect about the future energy mix and how we together can succeed in realising the energy transition.

Increasing offerings

Offshore Norge has recently announced a dedicated department for offshore wind to strengthen its work and offerings within this growing industry.

– Offshore Norge has worked for several years to establish an offshore wind industry on the Norwegian continental shelf. The first allocations of offshore wind areas will come next year, and I see a need to strengthen our work with offshore wind, said Hildegunn T. Blindheim, CEO of Offshore Norge, when Roger Pedersen was recently appointed head of offshore wind.

At Ocean Connect we will discuss the future energy mix, challenges to get there and business opportunities along the way.

Is it much about fancy words and greenwashing? – business as usual, or are there changes happening that can lead us in the right direction without creating new problems? – business as unusual!

Join us at Ocean Connect, 26 October in Bergen.
