Norwegian firm eyes offshore wind parks
Norway's energy giant Equinor sees good potential for building floating offshore wind parks in Greece as long as the country adopts a regulatory framework for the technology.
Equinor, one of the world's largest oil and gas producers, operates Hywind park in Scotland, the world's first floating offshore wind park, and is struggling to find new renewables projects to invest in.
In comments approved for release on Monday, Equinor's leading business developer said the company had been exploring opportunities in Greece.
"I think the physical potential is there. There are areas with good wind, suitable water depths," Arne Eik, Equinor's leading business developer for floating offshore wind, told Reuters.
"Now, it's whether there will be framework conditions that will allow developers to build a project."
