Here’s where we’re getting involved: 


Morgan and Mona 


We’ve partnered with EnBW to develop offshore wind projects in the Irish Sea. These will have combined potential generating capacity of the equivalent of 3.4 million UK households with renewable electricity when operational.




In the North Sea off the east coast of Scotland lies the site of another project in partnership with EnBW. Morven is planned to have a total potential generating capacity equivalent to the power needed for 3 million homes when operational.


Empire Wind and Beacon Wind  


These projects are the result of a strategic partnership between bp and Equinor. We’re developing two facilities off the coast of New York and Massachusetts that will have the potential to generate energy that is the equivalent of powering more than 2 million homes when operational.  


Global growth


We have announced a strategic partnership with major Japanese trading and investment company, Marubeni to explore a selected offshore wind development opportunity in Japan. This collaboration will also potentially explore other decarbonization projects. We have also formed a consortium with industry leaders Statkraft and Mainstream Renewable Power (formerly Aker Offshore Wind), which will bid to develop offshore wind power in Norway’s Sørlige Nordsjø II (SN2) ‎licence area.

To help us achieve these and our future goals, we’re enhancing our offshore wind team here at bp. We’re growing quickly, and we need the best people to help establish us as a global offshore wind champion.
