After a successful auction round last year, Estonia has awarded a second offshore wind site, preparing for the development of at least two projects

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Ignitis Renewables have secured the rights to 900 MW project area in Estonia, after winning the bid round for the Liivi 1 site in the Gulf of Riga. This is the second win for CIP and Ignitis Renewables in the country, following the first offshore wind auction round for the adjacent Liivi 2 site, at the end of last year.

According to the winning bids, the total combined capacity for the two sites Liivi 1 and Liivi 2 is 2.3 GW, with a total of 145 turbines. The developers have, however, stated the project is expected to be closer to 1-1.5 GW. The project has an estimated COD around 2035.

2024 is expected to be yet another eventful year for offshore wind in the Baltic Sea, with several new project sites to be awarded to developers. Lithuania has recently launched its second offshore wind auction, offering a 700 MW site and Finland is expected to conclude the rounds for the Ebba end Edith sites, with a combined capacity of 3000 MW. In addition, Denmark is expected to kick off rounds for the Bornholm Energy Islands sites, with a capacity up to 3800 MW.
