Southwind is a private initiative backed by established players in the Kristiansand energy supplier market, with decades of experience in marine and offshore operations and a wealth of knowledge, expertise and networks in offshore wind applications.
As the facilitating partner recognized by Kristiansand municipality, Southwind is leading the initial phase of attracting interest and coordinating public and private resources for offshore wind development.


The consortium has two main goals:

  • The establishment of a base of operation in Kristiansand
  • The establishment of a national center of competence for offshore wind 

Both serving Sørlige Nordsjø II specifically, and the North Sea generally, throughout the entire development of offshore wind parks, from geophysical surveys to installation, operation and maintenance.

To achieve the set goals, Southwind will operate as a facilitating partner, coordinating between public (Kristiansand municipality / Port of Kristiansand / University of Agder) and private resources in the exchange of experience, expertise, communication and contact between all stakeholders.
