Comments The Port of Sunderland will store the two offshore substations until they are installed. Also as part of the same deal a cable lay vessel and offshore barge will be based at the port.

The transmission tender round will be under the generator-build model and not the OFTO-build model. This means that the owner will build the transmission and another organisation will buy the transmission at a later date.
