Formation of New Round 3 Offshore Wind Consortium

Scottish & Southern Energy Scottish and Southern Energy plc, through its renewable energy development division Airtricity, has joined forces with Fluor Limited, the UK operating arm of Fluor Corporation, to create a new consortium to bid for the exclusive rights to develop wind farms under The Crown Estate's Round 3 Offshore Wind Farm Development Programme (Round 3).

The consortium, called Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, combines the extensive renewables development, asset management and operations experience of one of the UK's leading energy companies, with the offshore project delivery expertise of one of the world's largest publicly owned engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance services companies.

Airtricity and Fluor jointly developed the 500MW Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm located off the coast of Suffolk, which is currently the world's largest offshore wind farm under construction and is on schedule for completion in 2011. Airtricity and Fluor have also received an exclusive development agreement from The Crown Estate for the Bell Rock Offshore wind farm located within Scottish Territorial Waters.
