Vårgrønn is a sponsor of this year’s conference.

Vårgrønn is an agile, Norway-based offshore wind company powering the energy transition through development, construction, operation, and ownership of offshore wind assets.

Founded in 2020, Vårgrønn is a joint venture between the energy company Plenitude (Eni) and the Norwegian energy entrepreneur and investor HitecVision.

Headquartered in Stavanger, the energy capital of Norway, Vårgrønn also has an office in Oslo and opened their London office this year.

Rapidly growing project pipeline across Northern Europe

Vårgrønn’s pipeline of projects and prospective projects is growing rapidly. Currently, it spans the UK, Norway and Ireland, in addition to several early-stage initiatives in the Northern European market, including the Baltics.

With a vision to power the energy transition in Europe, Vårgrønn targets at least 5 GW of offshore wind in operation or sanctioned by 2030 across Northern Europe.

UK portfolio: Dogger Bank and frontrunner floating wind projects

Portfolio highlights for Vårgrønn include Dogger Bank, the world’s largest offshore windfarm under construction, and two pioneering floating wind projects with up to 1.9 GW capacity under development in Scotland.

At the 3.6 GW Dogger Bank Windfarm, Vårgrønn holds a 20 percent share and brings specialist offshore wind expertise to the project. Dogger Bank is being developed together with SSE Renewables and Equinor.

Vårgrønn’s floating projects in Scotland, Green Volt and Cenos, are frontrunner floating wind projects. They can deliver power as early as 2027 and 2028 respectively. Together with partner Flotation Energy, Vårgrønn is advancing the projects after receiving exclusivity for up to 1.9 GW capacity under the Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas (INTOG) leasing round. The projects will deliver renewable electricity to oil and gas platforms, as well as the UK grid.
