Energy giant Shell has เกมสล็อต teamed up with Scottish Power to bid to develop large floating wind farms off the coast of north east Scotland. They will bid jointly in an auction of 15 seabed locations for the next generation of wind farms. The firms says Scotland could be at the forefront of the sector, potentially providing power for a quarter of the UK domestic market - eight million homes. The auction could net the Scottish government up to £860m. Crown Estate Scotland, a public corporation following Scottish government policy, manages the seabed, and is overseeing the auction for the right to develop the selected sea areas. These include large sites off the Aberdeenshire and Angus coast, smaller sites in the Moray Firth, one to the east of Shetland, three to the west of Orkney, one off the west coast of Lewis and one north-west of Islay. Submissions for the ScotWind Leasing process close at 17:00 on Friday. Italian oil giant Eni is interested in the leasing round along with BP, French company Total, Equinor from Norway, and Shell - bidding alongside Scottish Power to get into floating wind turbines.
