New date: Projects that can participate in the offshore wind auction on June 21

With a total potential of 109 GW of offshore wind and with exploration and development areas of approximately 50 GW of cumulative potential, the company documents Roadmap for a just energy transition in Colombia (2023)setting the country’s goals, It has an installed offshore wind capacity of 7 GW in 2040 and 13 GW in 2050.

To develop this possibility, given the requests received regarding Competitive process for offshore wind power generation projectsThe National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH), as manager of the first round, amended the schedule of tender documents, to Extending the stakeholder qualification phase until June 21, 2024.

Until this period, those interested in participating in PThe competitive process must provide qualification documents, The director will study it and formulate the necessary requirements to complete the documents necessary to obtain the permit and submit it by the concerned parties.

New schedule


The purpose of this first round is DeMar, through a competitive process, grants temporary occupancy permits (POT) in marine areasIt aims to develop offshore wind energy projects for proposers who adopt existing legal, financial and technical capabilities and who submit the best offers in accordance with the provisions of the above-mentioned joint decision and these documents.

this way, The national government seeks to lay the foundations for the development of the offshore wind energy industry in Colombia, Not only promoting economic prosperity and caring for the environment, but also…Strengthening the defense industrial fabric and enhancing the production chain to enhance the comprehensive development of the communities concerned.

Projects that can participate

Currently, according to data from Mining and Energy Planning Unit (UPME), 12 offshore wind projects representing 5,134.5 MW have been submitted to the Generation Project Registration Report – see bottom of article -. These are located in the Central Caribbean, more precisely, to the west of Magdalena Department, Atlantico and Bolivar Departments, and the northern part of Sucre.

who are they, Three of them, with a capacity of 1,535 MW, are located in Bolivar and Atlantico, so they can certainly participate in the call. Another three are in Magdalena, for 1,749.9 MW, so depending on their geographical location they may or may not be included in the auction.

Finally, those who will be eliminated from this first round are those who are in it La Guajira: Six projects with a capacity of 1,850 MW
