SeaTwirl has, together with Kontiki Winds, entered a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) to explore new opportunities in the market, to implement offshore wind into new and existing Oil and Gas assets and micro grid applications such as the powering of fish farms, desalination plants and/or other small-scale applications that currently are based on fossil fuel electricity generation.
Kontiki Winds, a Havfram company, is an early-stage offshore wind technology developer and electrification enabler, focused on decarbonizing the global energy mix and driving a greener economy. Kontiki Winds recognises the increasing demands for electrification over a wide range of industries, and has over the past year, entered into collaboration with a range of complementary technology and service companies to enhance their electrification capabilities.
” In Kontiki Winds we have a collaboration partner that really is the perfect match for us. Kontiki Winds and their partners knows everything there is to know about electrifying offshore assets with wind power and we have wind turbine technology that is ideal for such applications. It will be truly exciting to launch this collaboration and accelerate the decarbonization of Oil & Gas, fish farms, desalination plants and other suitable assets.” Johan Sandberg, CEO.
“With SeaTwirl we have found a field tested solution for Offshore Wind Generation that fills a gap in the current market offering. We believe decentralised, easily installed and locally produced power will play a key role in the future energy mix and can’t wait to start exploring this further with SeaTwirl.” Eyvin Svendsen, VP Electrification Kontiki Winds.
