LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s energy regulator Ofgem on Tuesday picked Diamond Transmission Partners (DTP) as preferred bidder to own and operate the 180.6 million pound ($235 million) transmission link to the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm offshore Liverpool. Ofgem chose DTP, a consortium of Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation [MITSBQ.UL] and HICL Infrastructure Company Limited <HICL.L>, following a competitive tender process, it said in a statement. The 258 megawatt Burbo Bank Extension wind farm consists of 32 turbines. A consortium of DONG Energy <DENERG.CO>, Kirkbi and PKA currently owns the transmission assets for the project.
