Become Statnett's new Technical Manager Platform Design! 

Statnett works with the most important infrastructure in Norway and plays a central role in transforming the energy sector into a low-emission future. The large-scale development of offshore wind is considered to be an enabler for achieving Europe's climate goals. 

Statnett prepares to take a major role in developing offshore networks to integrate offshore wind power. HVDC technology is expected to play a major role in developing this network in the form of radial connections and hybrid links – and in the long term, interconnected networks between Norway and other countries around the North Sea.
