Consortium formed for Round Three offshore bidding

Consortium formed for Round Three offshore bidding
E.On, DONG energy and Fred Olsen Renewables have joined forces to bid for and develop "challenging" Round Three offshore wind licenses.

The consortium announced yesterday (March 3rd) that it was planning to bid to build thousands of megawatts of offshore wind capacity.

According to E.On regional director of renewables Dave Rogers, the third round of licensing is for sites that are further offshore and present more challenging conditions.

He added: "That's why we have, as a consortium, brought together companies with the financial ability and the experience of working on major on- and offshore wind projects, as well as working in difficult offshore conditions in the oil and gas industry, to make this a success."

E.On and DONG are working alongside Masdar on the one gigawatt London Array in the Thames Estuary.

A report for the Department for Energy and Climate Change earlier this year concluded that a further 7,000 wind turbines could be built off the coast of the UK by 2020, enough to power all the nation's homes.
