The ScotWind leasing round is starting to gain mainstream media attention.
Shell and Scottish Power said they had the "right blend of skills and experience" to successfully deliver the floating offshore wind projects.
Scottish Power chief executive officer Keith Anderson, told BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland programme that investing in massive infrastructure projects was the best way to get economic recovery for the whole of the country and allow Scotland to lead the world in the offshore energy sector.
He said: "It will create thousands of jobs and manufacturing opportunities and will ripple down through the supply chain. It will also create apprenticeship and graduate opportunities.
"What a brilliant way to get the economy up and running and at the same time a fantastic way to decarbonise and get to net zero."
