    RWE and Smålandshamnar, the operator of the Swedish Port of Oskarshamn, have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU). This agreement aims to assess the suitability of the port for accommodating the logistics, installation, loading, operations, and maintenance activities associated with RWE’s upcoming offshore wind projects in the Baltic Sea.

     

    Initially, the focus will be on identifying the requirements and necessary expansions and investments needed to enhance the port’s capacity. By prioritizing the early development of port facilities, RWE aims to position Sweden favorably to leverage the potential of the offshore wind industry.

     

    This partnership underscores a shared dedication to exchanging knowledge and expertise, thereby fostering broader industrial development in Sweden. Additionally, RWE has also inked a similar MoU with the Port of Karlshamn in early May.

     

    Vice president of offshore development Nordics at RWE Offshore Wind, Matilda Machacek, commented “We are delighted to be working with the Port of Oskarshamn and the Port of Karlshamn.”

     

    “Offshore wind expansion has significant potential in Sweden. Offshore infrastructure projects such as wind farms often require extensive logistical support.

     

    “For better logistics and more efficient operations, and for the viability of offshore wind in Sweden, it is important that we have harbours close to the projects. This will result in growth for both neighbouring ports and the surrounding regions.”

     

    Chief executive of Smålandshamnar, Niclas Strömqvist, added “The Port of Oskarshamn is already one of the leading harbours in Sweden for the transport and handling of onshore wind components.”

     

    “We are proud that RWE, one of the world’s leading companies in offshore wind, has taken note of our port and our expertise and supports our plans to become a hub for offshore wind, too.”

     

    “The Port of Oskarshamn is strategically positioned in the Baltic Sea and offers very good conditions and opportunities to meet the needs of future players in offshore wind power.”

     

    “Experience from other ports shows that the offshore wind industry is an employment accelerator that creates growth in the business community and thus the conditions for jobs and migration to the area. This will benefit not only Oskarshamn but also the region, Sweden and the green transition.”
