LONDON – Renewable energy developer Mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Financial Services said on Friday they jointly bid to build offshore wind capacity in the ScotWind leasing round.

It closed to applicants looking for the rights to build projects across 15 areas of available seabed off the Scottish coast on July 16 and initial offers will be made to successful applicants next January.

Bidders also included Equinor ASA, BP Plc, EnBW, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, RWE AG, Macquarie Group Ltd’s Green Investment Group and Orsted.
