A new report from Menon Economics shows that floating offshore wind can be one of Norway's most important job creators in 2050 if we set the pace.
The report states that the industry around floating offshore wind alone can create over 52,000 jobs in 2050. This corresponds to about 25 percent of the total employment in the oil industry back in 2019.
- The expertise we have in floating offshore technology due to oil and gas has given the Norwegian supply industry a heads start.
