ScottishPower and Shell sign option to lease agreements

ScottishPower and Shell sign option to lease agreements

22 Apr 2022

Following their success in the ScotWind leasing round at the start of the year, ScottishPower and Shell have signed an option to lease agreements with Crown Estate Scotland reserving the seabed rights for their MarramWind and CampionWind floating offshore windfarms.

Destined to be among the first commercial-scale floating offshore windfarms anywhere in the world, MarramWind (3GW) and CampionWind (2GW), off the east and north-east coasts of Scotland, will have the potential to power up to six million homes.

The signing of the agreements marks an important step towards delivering the ScotWind projects and a clean energy future.

Hessel de Jong, Shell General Manager Europe for Offshore Wind said: “Having signed option agreements with Crown Estate Scotland, a top priority is how the planning phase can be streamlined as much as possible to accelerate the delivery of 5GW of floating offshore wind power. This is another step in helping to provide more, cleaner power to homes and businesses.”
