ScotWind on Schedule

27 April 2020

The Crown Estate Scotland has announced it will use a multi-million investment to increase the scale of commercial offshore wind leasing in the North Sea.

Crown Estate Scotland is to proceed with the launch of the up to 10GW ScotWind leasing round this spring as planned but may tweak timings of certain deadline dates to take account of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Following incorporation of feedback from developers and interested parties, Crown Estate Scotland have now completed the preparation of the ScotWind leasing documentation, and are working with The Scottish Government to finalise and formally launch Scotland’s first round of offshore wind leasing for a decade.

The plans are are separate from those of the Crown Estate UK which has officially launched the Invitation to Tender (ITT) Stage 1 for the 4th round of the offshore wind leasing to offer seabed rights for at least 7GW of new projects in the waters around England and Wales.
