Sea Wind and Business |  Enova awards $2 billion to offshore wind project

The power will be delivered via the Goliath platform in the Barents Sea, which has already been electrified from shore.

Behind GoliatVind is Haugesund-based Source Galileo with an office in Bakerøy, Bergen-based Odfjell Oceanwind and Kansai Electric Power Corporation of Japan.

According to Enova, the capacity will be 75 MW, with an annual production of 320 GWh, which is equivalent to the energy consumption of about 12,000 Norwegian households. Electricity will be produced by five turbines, each with a capacity of 15 megawatts.
