Tender Round 2

Projects under the transitional tender rounds are those that qualified into the tender process by 31 March 2012 and specifically have transmission assets that were constructed by the offshore developer, then transferred to the offshore transmission owner (OFTO).

We commenced Tranche A of the second transitional tender round (TR2a) on 17 November 2010. Tranche B of the second transitional tender round (TR2b) started on 14 December 2012.
