Cobra and Flotation Energy win site in UK Round 4 Auction
A spokesperson for the joint bid by Cobra and Flotation Energy said: “Spanish Group Cobra, a worldwide leader in development, construction and management of major energy projects, and Flotation Energy, a Scottish offshore wind developer, are very excited to have secured our Morecambe offshore windfarm site in such a competitive leasing round.
“We are convinced this Irish Sea project has huge potential with unique strengths and advantages, based on a high wind resource, low water depths (20-30m), short distance to shore (less than 20 miles) and good ground conditions.
“There is now a lot of hard work needed to get the project built and delivering renewable electricity as quickly as possible. We are strongly committed to working with the local community to make this happen. The project will require significant investment and support hundreds of jobs in the area.”
