Arup appointed specialist reviewers for upcoming ScotWind Leasing round

Arup announced on 21 February that it has been appointed by Crown Estate Scotland as specialist for the upcoming first round of ScotWind leasing later this year.

Arup will work together with Crown Estate Scotland to finalise the approach to evaluating applications from developers. The company will also be part of the team of reviewers that will evaluate individual applications.

John Robertson, Head of Energy & Infrastructure at Crown Estate Scotland, said: “We are committed to helping enable Scotland’s ambition to achieve a net-zero emissions target by 2045 through our role as manager of Scotland’s seabed. ScotWind Leasing will provide certainty and clarity for those seeking to lease seabed for new offshore wind farms in Scottish Waters, encouraging low-carbon generation, and we look forward to working with Arup as we deliver a robust and transparent leasing process.”
