OFGEM ANNOUNCEMENT ON BEATRICE OFTO INVESTMENT

10 June 2021

International Public Partnerships Limited ('INPP' or 'the Company'), the listed infrastructure investment company, notes that Ofgem, as anticipated, published a notice under Section 8A of the Electricity Act 1989 on 9 June 2021 relating to the Beatrice Offshore Transmission project ('OFTO')[1]. This is a key step towards reaching financial close on the investment that the Company expects to make in the project. As previously reported, the Company expects to invest c.GBP 50 million into the project upon financial close, anticipated to be in July 2021.

The project will be the Company's eighth OFTO investment and relates to the transmission cable connection to the offshore wind farm located in the Outer Moray Firth, approximately 13.5km off the Caithness coastline in Scotland. The wind farm consists of 84 x 7MW wind turbine generators with an installed capacity of 588MW connected to two offshore substation platforms ('OSP') located within the boundaries of the Beatrice wind farm. It is Scotland's largest operational offshore wind farm.

This investment will increase the Company's contribution to the UK's transition to a zero-carbon economy. The Beatrice OFTO will transmit green electricity equivalent to around 450,000 UK homes, increasing the number of homes that are powered by the Company's OFTO portfolio to approximately 1.8 million homes.

The Company takes no exposure to electricity production or price risk but is paid a pre-agreed, availability-based revenue stream over 23 years which is fully linked to UK inflation ('RPI').

The Company has a strong near-term OFTO pipeline, being preferred bidder on Rampion and East Anglia One OFTOs which represent c.GBP135 million of additional investment commitments.
