The two companies want to test a floating PV array under harsh weather conditions in rough waters for at least a year.

The system will be based on a floating solar technology developed by Maritime Moss, a unit of Saipem.

Norwegian oil giant Equinor is partnering with Vollsveien-based engineering specialist Moss Maritime, a unit of Italian gas contractor Saipem, to test an offshore floating solar array off the island of Froya, near Trondheim, in the Norwegian Sea.
