Cerulean Winds wins bid for three INTOG floating wind sites

Cerulean Winds and Frontier Power International have been awarded three lease options for the Central North Sea in the highly competitive INTOG leasing round, the results of which were announced by Crown Estate Scotland today.

The sites, in the Central North Sea, will enable the green infrastructure developer and its partners to develop large floating offshore windfarms to decarbonise oil and gas assets. The scale of the development will enable a UK wide offshore transmission system, that can offer green energy to offshore assets in any location and create a beneficial export opportunity.

Dan Jackson, founding director of Cerulean Winds said: “We are thrilled that our bids for three sites in the Central North Sea have been successful and would like to thank Crown Estate Scotland for backing our INTOG proposal. Our development represents a multi-billion pound investment to create one of the largest offshore floating wind developments, supporting climate goals by removing tens of millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions from oil and gas production. We are now working with our partners so that we can move at pace to help scale the supply chain in Scotland to deliver on this significant opportunity.”

Humza Malik, co-founder and CEO of Frontier Power said: “We are delighted our three bids were successful.  This is an important step in our mission of helping to address the climate change challenge through developing renewable energy at scale.”
