ScotWind offshore leasing round

Red Rock Power Limited and Eni, have formed a new 50/50 partnership as they prepare to make a joint bid with the support of transmission company, Transmission Investment in the forthcoming ScotWind offshore leasing round. The companies will also consider future renewable opportunities in Scotland and combine their wind farm development and offshore expertise, harnessing a common desire to support the net zero transition.

The partnership’s future offshore wind projects in particular would prioritise maximising opportunities for local supply chain growth, the development and deployment of new technologies, and contributing to the decarbonisation of the North Sea and the transfer of skills this will generate.

Transmission Investment will bring to the ScotWind bid partnership its extensive expertise in grid infrastructure, a key area of focus for UK offshore wind and for ScotWind. With an industry leading track record in the acquisition and management of GB offshore wind farms connections, and offshore wind generation and interconnector sector development experience, Transmission Investment is well placed to contribute to the expansion of the Scottish electricity sector in general, and Scottish offshore wind in particular.
