Aker Offshore Wind A/S said Thursday it has formed a partnership with Ocean Winds to develop floating offshore wind generation sites in Scotland.

Currently partnering in California, U.S., and Korea, the companies will join forces to bid in the ScotWind leasing round, which is making new seabed leases available for the development of offshore wind in Scottish waters.

The two companies will jointly submit the bid by July 16 to Crown Estate Scotland.

Ocean Winds is a 50/50 partnership between EDP Renovaveis S/A and ENGIE S.A., which was established last year to develop offshore wind technology. The partnership has 4 gigawatts in construction and operation, including the 950 megawatt Moray East and Moray West fixed offshore wind projects in the U.K.
