WindWorks Jelsa is exploring several options for establishing an operation and construction base for bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind.


WindWorks Jelsa continues its efforts to establish an efficient large-scale base for the production and assembly of foundations for offshore wind in Europe and is considering several different solutions after Mibau Stema chose to end negotiations for the establishment at the quarry in Jelsa.

“We note that Mibau Stema terminated negotiations regarding our planned facility in Jelsa,” says Geir Ims. “The owners of WindWorks Jelsa remain very committed to play a major role to fulfill the ambitions for offshore wind in Europe and continue our work to plan and develop a site for our customers.”

“We have great confidence in the opportunities our region offers and are open to continue negotiations while at the same time exploring several different alternatives to meet the demand for sustainable wind energy, both in connection with bottom-fixed offshore wind around the North Sea basin, Skagerrak, and Sweden, as well as the upcoming tenders for floating offshore wind,” says Chairman Geir Ims of WindWorks Jelsa.

Large-scale fabrication of both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind foundations will be crucial to meet the European ambitions, which is expected to reach 120 GW by 2039. Europe still lacks available port facilities to meet these plans.
