The Crown Estate Scotland announced on January 17 the results of the ScotWind seabed tender, after receiving 74 bids for the 15 areas that were auctioned – which amount to 8,600 square meters of sea space. They awarded 17 projects, which cover just over 7,000 km² and add up to a total capacity of almost 25 GW.

“The high competition for seabed rights shows just how attractive offshore wind development has become in Europe. And not only conventional bottom-fixed offshore wind. The tender is a huge breakthrough for floating offshore wind, with 15 GW of floating projects winning development rights”, says WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson said.
