Crown Estate Scotland has announced the result of ScotWind Leasing round clearing process, awarding Ocean Winds with two seabed leases for floating offshore wind projects: a 1.8 GW capacity site with partner Mainstream Renewable Power, and another 500 MW capacity site, east of the Shetland Islands.
 
The first project is a 1.8 GW site, that was awarded to a 50:50 JV partnership with Mainstream Renewable Power, located east of the Shetland Islands, and in approximately 100m water depth. The partners are committed to developing floating offshore wind on an industrial scale in Scotland, generating local jobs and opportunities in Scotland and the Shetland Islands. The second project is a 500 MW site, also east of Shetland and within the NE1 ScotWind Draft Plan Option area.
 
These adjacent sites are additional to the development rights for the NE4 429 km2 site in Moray Firth already awarded to Ocean Winds during the ScotWind process in January 2022 (the 2 GW Caledonia Offshore Wind Farm).
