LogIn Event Type: Operation - Generating Power
Generating Power Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm Limited will trigger its Contracts for Difference (CfD) agreement in two phases: the first totalling 252MW of capacity at an Allocation Strike Price of £140/MWh. The Target Commissioning Window (TCW) start date set by the CfD and signed with the Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) is the 31st March LogIn. However, the generator has proposed a start date of the 15th November LogIn to trigger the fifteen year contract, in which it will be required to have commissioned 80% of its Installed Capacity Estimate (ICE) of 252MW.
The TCW is open for a period of one year; commissioning after the final day results in an according reduction in the period of subsidy support. Furthermore, commissioning of at least 85% of the ICE is required by the 'long-stop' date two years after the close of the TCW, otherwise the counterparty body will terminate the CfD without compensation.
