The Crown Estate, which acts as manager of the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, has hosted a Round 4 bidders day to give offshore wind developers further insight into how it will run the 7GW seabed rights auction.

More than 130 industry representatives attended a special 'Bidders Information Day' held in central London on Wednesday (09 October) on The Crown Estate's next round of offshore wind leasing (Round 4).

The Bidders Information Day follows the launch of Leasing Round 4 last month and was hosted by The Crown Estate specifically for potential participants in Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4 and their advisors.

Participants were provided with more detail about the tender process which will open later this month, as well as providing the opportunity to put questions to The Crown Estate team.

Attendees were talked through: The four broad 'Bidding Areas' of seabed which have been specifically identified for Leasing Round 4; How bidders will have the opportunity to propose their project sites and details of the tender process and evaluation criteria; The supporting data which The Crown Estate is providing to assist bidders including constraints analysis and stakeholder feedback, and the structure and timing of the full leasing process.
