bp and EnBW were awarded a ~860km2 lease option off the east coast of Scotland to develop a major offshore wind project, Morven, which is expected to have a total generating capacity of around 2.9GW – enough to power the equivalent of more than 3 million homes.

As part of their commitment to support oil and gas workers through employment and provide opportunities for reskilling in renewables, bp and EnBW have committed more than £1 million to X-Academy in Scotland. This will help to support both reskilling experienced workers and the creation of entry-level energy transition roles.

The Morven project is expected to support up to £10 billion of investment in offshore wind and aims to go further than generating wind power. Investments include significant expansion of EV charging infrastructure, Scottish shipbuilding, port redevelopment and green hydrogen production, helping to support Scotland to become a global leader in offshore wind.
