The CFD price achieved by Hexicon is “an initial line in the sand that other developers will be looking very closely at,” Edward Unwin, Floating Wind Lead at Kent, an energy sector engineering firm, said.
The price of future floating wind projects could be higher due to less favourable site conditions, Unwin said.
"Some of the bigger farms will be much more costly to build and operate, despite economies of scale, due to their remoteness from suitable infrastructure and the environmental conditions they will be in," he said.
The competitive TwinHub contract price demonstrates the growing appetite for commercial-scale floating wind in the UK, Unwin said.
