International Public Partnerships Limited ('the Company', 'INPP'), the listed infrastructure investment company, is pleased to announce that Transmission Capital Partners, the consortium comprising INPP, Amber Infrastructure and Transmission Investment has been appointed as preferred bidder for the long-term license and operation of a further offshore transmission project ('OFTO').


The latest scheme, comprising the transmission cable connection to East Anglia One Offshore Wind Farm represents the tenth such project that Transmission Capital Partners has been appointed to, as preferred bidder.  The Company expects to invest up to £90 million into East Anglia One OFTO, with financial close estimated in the second half of 2021. 


This investment commitment is in addition to the Company's extremely strong near term OFTO pipeline where it has already been appointed preferred bidder on Rampion and Beatrice OFTOs, representing additional investment commitments of up to £100 million. These OFTOs are also expected to reach financial close during the course of 2021.


The East Anglia One offshore windfarm is located c.50km off the coast of Suffolk. East Anglia One has an installed capacity of 714MW providing enough green energy to power over 630,000 homes, thereby increasing the number of homes that are powered by the Company's OFTO portfolio to over two million homes.


The Company takes no exposure to electricity production or price risk but is paid a pre-agreed, availability-based revenue stream over 21 years which is fully linked to UK inflation ('RPI').

The offshore wind farm connected by this transmission project is, as at the time of the bid submission, jointly owned by Scottish Power Renewable (UK) Limited (60%) and Bilbao Offshore Holding Limited (40%) (part of the Green Investment Group).


Additional information on the project will be realised on financial close.
