Norway brings wind power in Greece

A floating wind turbine farm is planned to be constructed in the center of the Aegean sea by the Norwegian giant Equinor. The plan is already in discussion between the Greek government and the Norwegian ambassador. The farm is planned to cover the energy demand of approximately 40.000 households.

The most promising area seems to be the space between Tinos, Syros, and Mykonos. The relatively small waves and the strong winds are rendering the region ideal for this investment. The plan will include the know-how transfer from the Norwegian experts to Greek companies which are related to this sector. Officials from both the Greek government and energy sector will have a main role in the project also.
