22 Feb 2024: Update February 2024: Moray East has closed on the transaction. Update February 2024: TC Moray East OFTO Ltd has been given a license to operate the offshore transmission assets for Moray East. The substation was valued at £666 million. Transfer Date/Licence Grant expected July 2022 as part of the Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) Tender Round Seven (TR7) for Moray East offshore wind farm. Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) Tender Round Seven (TR7) was launched late-November 2020. TR7 will enable bidders to compete to own the transmission assets of two offshore wind farm projects: Moray East and Triton Knoll. The tender process will consist of two stages for each TR7 project: an Enhanced Pre-Qualification (EPQ) followed by an Invitation to Tender (ITT). The EPQ includes questionnaire and bidders will be evaluated based on suitability, financial standing, technical and professional ability, limitation criteria etc. The outcome of this stage will be a shortlist of qualifying bidders, up to a maximum of 8, who will be invited to participate in the ITT Stage. At the ITT Stage, shortlisted qualifying bidders will be granted access to the data room which will include sufficient information to enable bidders to make an informed investment decision. During the ITT Stage, Ofgem will evaluate the tenders submitted by each shortlisted qualifying bidder. It will evaluate tenders against a set of evaluation criteria e.g. financial and non-financial deliverability. The outcome of this stage will either be selection of a preferred bidder (and possibly also a reserve bidder) for each Qualifying Project, or a decision to run a Best and Final Offer stage. After the preferred bidder is selected, the preferred bidder and the relevant developer will work together to finalise arrangements for transfer of the transmission assets from the developer to the licenced OFTO. Once arrangements are finalized, there will be a 28-day public consultation on the proposed modifications to the OFTO licence in order to incorporate the OFTO-specific provisions in the licence. Following the consultation the OFTO licence can be granted. Winning bidders will own and operate transmission assets including offshore platforms, subsea cables and onshore infrastructure. Bidders will be awarded an OFTO licence entitling it to a revenue stream for a 25-year period.
