Three offshore links on offer in £2 billion tender

A tender will open on 29 October three offshore transmission assets, Ofgem has announced. The regulator says the three links will together be worth more than £2 billion.

The assets are links to three offshore wind farms:
• Beatrice (588MW), 13km off of the Caithness coast;
• Hornsea 1 ( 1,218MW), 120km from the Yorkshire /Lincolnshire coast; and
• EastAngliaONE (714MW), 43km from the East Anglia /Suffolk coast.
A launch event will be held on 10 October. Parties should register to attend by 3 October. Ofgem also promised to provide an update on its OFTO tender process policy consultation for future tender rounds at that time.
Parties who want to hold bilateral meetings with Ofgem and their advisers directly to discuss TR6 should email [email protected].
