Statoil is preparing to launch its seabed and UXO surveys along the cable route and project area of its 30MW Hywind project off the coast of Aberdeenshire.
Statoil's head of asset management for Renewables said the lower oil price is both a "challenge and opportunity" for the industry to move into other growth areas.
Statoil today launched a new power pilot for the world’s first offshore floating windfarm.
NorSea Group has struck a deal with Statoil for the use of its Strodbase in Norway to assemble the world’s first floating windfarm off the coast of Aberdeenshire.
Statoil is to launch a new investment fund specifically for investment in renewable energy.
The first part of Norwegian operator Statoil's substructure for its Hywind project has begun to take shape.
The firm behind ambitious plans to create a floating windfarm off the north-east coast have promised it will deliver a jobs bonanza. Energy giant Statoil said last night its Hywind scheme would generate hundreds of posts during the construction, 15 miles from shore.
Take a look back at some of the biggest stories affecting the renewables industry across the globe.
German engineering giant Siemens will supply five turbines for the world’s largest floating wind energy project off the coast of Peterhead. Siemens helped Statoil prove the concept at the first full-scale floating wind project, Hywind Demo, off the coast of Norway six years ago.
Offshore moorings specialist MacGregor, has won an order for substructure connection mooring systems for Statoil's Hywind pilot park off the north east Scotland coast.
Key equipment for the world’s first floating windfarm will be made in Aberdeen and at Nigg Energy Park in the Highlands, it was announced yesterday.
Statoil has awarded the latest Hywind pilot park contract to Isleburn Limited.
Statoil's flagship Hywind project could be replicated in regions such as the US and Japan, according to the company's head of asset management.
Statoil's UK managing director said the Hywind project could become a "profitable leg" for the company as it looks to expand its renewables arm. The company announced it had taken a final investment decision on plans to build the world's largest offshore windfarm just a day after winning approval from the Scottish Government. Tove Stuhr Sjoblom sat down with Energy Voice to discuss the next steps for the first of a kind project.
Statoil has made the final investment decision for its Hywind pilot park in the North Sea.
Plans to build the world’s largest offshore windfarm off the north-east coast have been approved. Norwegian energy giant Statoil will erect five 600ft turbines tethered to the bed of the North Sea, 15 miles from Peterhead. The Scottish Government has today granted the firm a marine licence, allowing construction work on the huge structures to begin.
Floating wind turbine technology is well placed to help oil and gas operators reduce the cost of recovery from reservoirs using water injection, according to an industry expert. A new joint industry project - Win Win - being led by DNV GL, has brought together oil majors including ExxonMobil, ENI, Statoil, Nexen and VNG to share knowledge and pursue water injection in subsea reservoirs delivered by wind-power rather than traditional gas turbines. The technology is seen as being cost-efficient, able to reduce an oil platform's carbon footprint and offers opportunities for one turbine to be used on multiple wells.
