Vattenfall has invoked their step-in rights for the N-6.6 site in the North Sea, matching the winning bid and securing 630 MW of capacity. The site, originally put up for auction in the 2023 round for pre-centrally investigated areas, was awarded to RWE in August. Vattenfall however, had step-in rights to their area, due to previous site investigation on the site prior to the current allocation and auction system being implemented. The N-6.6 site was originally developed under the name Atlantic I, acquired by Vattenfall in 2017. The current project on the site is now called Nordlicht II and is in close proximity to Vattenfall’s Nordlicht I project. The combined cluster will have a total capacity of 1610 MW.
