BRITAIN'S WIND ENERGY 3 GW €11.6 BLN
ENERDATA - 2 Jun 2021 - Cerulean Winds plans to develop a 3 GW floating wind project in the British North Sea (United Kingdom). The company submitted an application for a lease to Marine Scotland, which oversees Scotland's seas and freshwater fisheries. The £10bn (€11.6bn) project, comprising 200 floating wind turbines, would supply power to offshore oil and gas facilities. The power plant could also feed power to onshore hydrogen plants. The project, which would require no subsidies or Contract-for-Difference (CfD), might reach financial close and start construction in 2022. First power is targeted in 2024.
