The partnership between floating wind frontrunners Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy has inked go-ahead option agreements for its giga-scale winning bids in Scotland’s giant ScotWind offshore wind leasing round.

Forecast to accommodate some 3GW of floating wind, the three sites on the acreage landed by the pair will change name, with E1 off Aberdeenshire now known as Bellrock, NE6 off Fraserburgh to be called Broadshore, and the N3 site east off Caithness to go by Stromar.

“We [can] now move on to delivering floating wind developments at a scale which will really make a difference to Scotland,” said BlueFloat CEO Carlos Martin Rivals.
