The Crown Estate (TCE), the British sovereign’s public estate property management organization, had selected a total of four areas, within which six project areas were awarded to bidders. The bid from EnBW and bp was successful against a prestigious field of competitors. “Our bids for the most attractive areas in the auction proved successful. These areas stand out, in particular, due to their above-average wind conditions and favorable prospects for obtaining the required approvals,” says Dirk Güsewell, member of the EnBW Board of Management. The application for connecting both wind farms to the grid has already been submitted.
