A group of leading offshore wind companies and funds have confirmed their participation in Crown Estate Scotland’s ScotWind leasing process
The NextGen consortium, led by Quaybridge Scotland, Parkwind and Maple Power is backed by several partners including BlackRock Real Assets and Sumitomo Corporation.
The NextGen consortium said its “innovative approach” to offshore wind development in Scotland will ensure the creation of high-value local jobs.
The consortium said it has worked closely with stakeholders across Scotland to complete early development work, pilot innovative supply chain interventions and build community level relationships for the last three years.
The consortium has initiated development of sites off the coast of Scotland with the objective of safely and successfully delivering the first ScotWind projects into operation.
Critical path offshore ornithological, marine mammal and metocean surveys have already been completed by the consortium, reducing the time needed to bring the projects into construction.
