Two of the winning projects, Hornsea 2 and Moray Firth, will be delivered at a price of £57.50/MWh, which is far below even the most bullish of industry predictions. A project where the first phase completes earlier, Triton Knoll, will cost £74.75/ MWh. Most industry observers had been expecting pricing in the range £65-£70/MWh, a price that would only recently have been considered impossible to achieve.
