Aker Solutions aims to bring into operation a plethora of floating wind projects within the next decade in the North Sea, the US and South Korea as it also seeks to capitalise on “huge” earnings potential in the carbon capture market with the spin-off of a pair of new green energy entities.

The Norwegian contractor has set out its stall for prospective investors ahead of proposed stock listings on the Merkur market of the Oslo bourse for Aker Offshore Wind and Aker Carbon Capture to raise fresh funds for capital-intensive investments in the renewables and low-carbon sphere.
