Dogger Bank offshore wind farm produces power for the first time c Dogger BankDogger Bank offshore wind farm has started producing electricity for the first time for British homes and businesses. The 3.6GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being constructed in UK waters 70 nautical miles (130km) off the coast of Yorkshire and in three 1.2GW phases known as Dogger Bank A, B and C.
 
Power from the project’s first offshore wind turbine at Dogger Bank A is now being transmitted to the UK’s national grid via Dogger Bank’s high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system.
 
First power followed the installation of the first of GE Vernova’s Haliade-X 13MW turbines at the Dogger Bank site.The offshore installation of GE Vernova’s 13MW Haliade-X turbine technology at Dogger Bank A was completed by engineers working off Jan De Nul Group's jack-up installation vessel, Voltaire. Dogger Bank also marks the first use of HVDC transmission technology to connect a British wind farm to National Grid’s UK energy network. This includes the installation of an unmanned offshore HVDC substation platform at the site, as well as first use of Hitachi Energy’s HVDC Light transmission system.
 
Dogger Bank is being developed and built by the UK’s SSE Renewables in a joint venture with Norway’s Equinor and Vårgrønn (a joint venture of Eni Plenitude and HitecVision). SSE Renewables is lead operator for the development and construction of Dogger Bank Wind Farm. Equinor will be lead operator of the wind farm on completion for its expected operational life of around 35 years. Vårgrønn brings specialist offshore wind expertise to the project.
