Colombia will hold a competitive bidding auction for the development of offshore wind farms and the first round of contracts is due to be awarded in the second half of 2023.
Colombia’s maritime authority DIMAR will be responsible for evaluating offers and issuing licenses for the temporary occupation of areas in the Caribbean Sea. The permits assigned in this first round will allow investors to determine the feasibility of the projects and advance their environmental permits. The auction will offer developers the opportunity to bid on selected areas off the Caribbean coastal departments of Bolívar and Atlántico. Technical specifications for the projects are expected to be published by year-end.
