Parkwind to develop wind farm off Norwegian coast

A consortium made up of Belgian wind farm developer Parkwind and the parent company of furniture giant Ikea has won the contract to build an offshore wind farm in Norway, the Norwegian government announced on Wednesday.

The consortium, called Ventyr, won the auction to develop the Sorlige Nordsjo wind farm, which has a capacity of 1,500 megawatts.

Parkwind was sold last year by Belgian retail group Colruyt Group's energy division, Virya Energy, to Japanese energy group Jera. The deal included the sale of the company's wind farms on the Belgian North Sea coast and abroad for 1.55 billion euros.

In April 2022, Parkwind worked with Belgian high-voltage grid public operator Elia and Danish steel contractor Bladton a project to build an offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.
