Over 40 organizations involved in the wind energy supply chain are uniting around the common goal of advancing offshore wind energy in Europe.

The companies - which include Vestas and Siemens, among many developers, manufacturers, research firms, supply-chain firms and industry bodies - have teamed up to form a new alliance called Norstec.

The alliance will communicate the benefits of clean energy in Europe's northern seas to the public, businesses and politicians. Signatories will collaborate and share information to ensure that the benefits offered by vast clean energy potential in Europe's Northern Seas are fully realized, according to the U.K.'s Department of Energy and Climate Change.

“I continue to be strongly supportive of the U.K. offshore renewables sector and am delighted to see Norstec rising from the waves,” says U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron. “As I said when I launched this network last April, we are on the cusp of a second, clean energy revolution in the North Sea. Close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.”

The following companies have joined the Norstec network: Able UK, Alstom, Areva, Balfour Beatty, The Crown Estate, David Brown Gear Systems Ltd., Deep Ocean Group, DONG Energy, EDPR, E.On, Fluor Ltd., Gamesa, Harland & Wolff, Hochtief, JDR Cables, Mainstream, Modus Seabed Intervention Ltd., Narec, National Grid, NIRAS Consulting Ltd., OGN Group & Aquind, Parsons Brinckerhoff, PMT Industries Ltd., Prysmian Group, RenewableUK, REpower, Repsol, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Power, Scottish Renewables, SeaEnergy PLC, Seajacks, Siemens, Skanska SMIT-Grontmij, Southboats, SSE, Statkraft, Statoil, TAG Energy Solutions, Tata Steel, Technip, Vattenfall, Vestas and VSMC.
