 Equinor

Equinor is developing as a broad energy company, building a material position in renewable energy. Equinor now powers more than one million European homes with renewable energy from four offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom and Germany, and will also operate Dogger Bank, the world’s largest offshore wind farm currently under construction.
Equinor is developing significant offshore wind clusters in the UK, the US North East and in the Baltics. The company commissioned the world’s first floating offshore wind farm in 2017 off the coast of Scotland and is positioned for future floating wind options in several geographies, including UK, Norway and Asia. It is also a leader in both carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen, and is developing a number of projects in Europe, including in the Humber and Teesside regions of North East England.

Equinor has been in the UK for over 35 years, and supports the UK economy by investing billions in crucial energy infrastructure, working with over 700 suppliers across the country working to secure a long-term energy supply. Its energy supplies from Norway meet more than one quarter of the UK’s demand for natural gas and around one fifth of its demand for oil, both produced with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry. Its Mariner oil field is one of the largest upstream investments in the last 10 years in the UK and started production in August 2019.

OW Ocean Winds

OW is a new company is a 50:50 offshore wind joint-venture, owned and created by EDPR and Engie in 2019. Both companies believe that offshore wind energy is becoming an essential part of the global energy transition, leading to the sector’s rapid growth and increased competitiveness. That is why they have included all their existing and pipeline offshore portfolio in the new company.

OW has a strategic advantage and is well positioned to play a leading role in the offshore market. EDPR and ENGIE are combining their offshore wind assets and project pipeline in the JV, starting with a total of 1.5 GW under construction and 4.0 GW under development, with the target of reaching 5 to 7 GW of projects in operation or under construction and 5 to 10 GW under advanced development by 2025. OW primarily targets markets in Europe, the United States and selected geographies in Asia, from where most of the growth is expected to come.

OW have been at the forefront of the drive to deliver floating offshore wind.  Early investment in the WindFloat 1 prototype led to the recently completed 25MW WindFloat Atlantic project.  This experience means that OW are confident floating technology is ready for commercial-scale deployment.
