GoliatVIND is a floating offshore wind demonstration project in Norway.
GoliatVIND will be connected to one of the world’s most impressive oil fields, Goliat, that is located in the Barents Sea, off the coast of Norway. Here, Odfjell Oceanwind and Source Galileo Norge is collaborating on a demonstration project for floating offshore wind to supply the platform with renewable energy.
The Goliat platform is currently powered from shore via a 75 MW power cable. The purpose of the GoliatVIND project is to demonstrate floating offshore wind technology in Norway.
On 26 April 2023 Odfjell Oceanwind, Source Galileo Norge and Vår Energi started collaborating on GoliatVIND.
GoliatVIND can be developed as early as 2026, given that external factors are in place (e.g. regulatory framework, including incentives and licences for development from the authorities).
At Source Galileo Norge, we understand the potential of floating offshore wind to help our planet transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable sources of energy – both in Norway and beyond.
Our team's knowledge and expertise allows us to develop renewable energy projects in the most responsible manner. We want to build strong links with local host communities because we believe that together we can create a cleaner, brighter future for Norway.
