Ofgem has launched the second tender round for high-voltage transmission links worth around GBP 1.9 billion for six offshore wind projects. This is the second tender round in the offshore transmission regime, which is a joint policy initiative between DECC and Ofgem, to encourage cost-effective investment in the vital network links between the offshore windfarms and the mainland grid.

Companies will be competing for the right to own and operate the links to 2.8GW of offshore wind farms for the next 20 years. Tenders for the first three projects, Gwynt-y-Mor, Lincs and London Array, started November 17. Tenders for the other three, Humber Gateway, Race Bank and West of Duddon Sands, are expected to start in Spring 2012 once they have met the necessary qualifying requirements.
