On 12 April 2021, North Energy ASA (“North Energy”) and Ferd AS (“Ferd”) have jointly exercised their option to subscribe for new shares in Wind Catching Systems AS (“Wind Catching Systems”) for an amount of NOK 10 million each.
Following the share subscription by Ferd and North, each party holds approximately 31% of the shares in Wind Catching Systems. In addition, the founding shareholders in aggregate hold options that can be exercised which, if exercised, would result in a fully diluted ownership for North and Ferd of 26% each.
The engineering and design work performed so far has strengthened our belief in the technological potential of providing floating offshore wind power at bottom fixed offshore wind economics. Wind Catching Systems is currently preparing a significant wind tunnel test to be performed in Milano during the summer of 2021. Positive results from the test will further validate the technology and contribute to unlocking the significant commercial potential of Wind Catching Systems.
