Norwegian Energy Partners has entered into an agreement with Mr. Lars Engelmann to act as an advisor on the offshore wind industry in Germany. Mr. Engelmann, formerly Head of maritime operations and logistics at Vattenfall, will advise partners of Norwegian Energy Partners on opportunities in the German offshore wind market. Norwegian supply industry is expected to enable further reduction of LCOE in offshore wind based on its expertise in offshore and maritime operations and projects.
