Floating offshore wind was a natural main focus on Wednesday when Ørsted announced its entry into Norwegian offshore wind in a consortium with Fred. Olsen Renewables and Hafslund Eco.

These are also expected to comprise the far greatest volume of up to 3.5 GW distributed across two to three sites.
