– Offshore wind will be a large, global industry. It is important that the Norwegian supplier industry secures a position here, and our company will do that. The train is leaving the station now, says CEO Odd Strømsnes in Havfram.

Strømsnes believes it is important to transfer knowledge from the work with oil installations to offshore wind.

– Both involve demanding, maritime offshore operations. We will be able to use much of our expertise in the work with installing offshore wind systems – both floating and bottom-fixed.

In the summer of 2020, the company entered into collaboration with the Norwegian shipyard group Vard for the development of a new type of ship for the installation of offshore wind turbines. The new ship will be able to install turbine components of 1,000 tonnes and a height of 150 meters.

In 2021 the company will have a turnover of around NOK 2.5 billion, and an ever-increasing share will come from offshore wind.
