SSE, CIP and Marubeni partner for Crown Estate bid

SSE Renewables is partnering with Japanese conglomerate Marubeni Corporation (Marubeni) and Danish fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on joint bids for the ScotWind seabed leasing process managed by Crown Estate Scotland.

Marubeni brings a wealth of sector experience and is currently leading a consortium to build Japan’s first commercial scale offshore wind projects at Akita Port and Noshiro Port in Akita Prefecture, whilst CIP has experience of delivering offshore wind with interests in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia and seven energy infrastructure funds and more than € 12bn in commitments under management.

SSE Renewables director of capital projects, Paul Cooley, said: “We are excited to bring together the combined strengths of each of the partner organisations. With a leading track record in developing, building and operating large-scale renewable projects in Scotland, SSE Renewables brings significant national and local experience. We will seek to maximise the opportunities that are available to the local supply chain to take part in these future projects and will continue to actively engage through the Scottish supply chain clusters.”
