DONG Energy, E.ON and Fred Olsen form Round 3 consortium

DONG Energy, E.ON and Fred Olsen Renewables have formed a consortium to bid for exclusive rights on a number of zones as part of the UK Crown Estate's Round 3 Offshore Wind Farm programme.

Dave Rogers, Regional Director for Renewables at E.ON, says: “In Round 3 we'll see windfarms being built further offshore and in much more challenging environments than ever before.” And according to Niels Bergh-Hansen, Executive Vice President at DONG Energy, “Nothing on this scale has been done before.”

The consortium members have been involved in over 60% of the existing operational offshore windfarms around the world and are currently building five offshore windfarms with a capacity of 800 MW.

The three companies have worked together on renewable and offshore wind projects dating back to the 1990s and have contractual commitments extending beyond 2020.
