Equinor and SSE Renewables each own 50% of the proposed Dogger Bank D development. The Dogger Bank D proposal would require a new development consent order to progress into construction and could add an additional 1.32GW in fixed-bottom offshore wind capacity to the 3.6GW already in construction with phases A, B and C of the project.
The developers will release an initial scoping report in late March outlining ongoing work to explore the technical feasibility of deploying latest-available technology. There are two options being explored for the energy generated by the offshore wind farm: a grid connection and/or green hydrogen production.
The first would see power from Dogger Bank D connecting to a grid connection in Lincolnshire, where National Grid is installing new network infrastructure in response to the UK Government’s ambitions to generate 50 GW of offshore wind by 2030. The second option being considered by the developers is the use of electricity produced by offshore wind to generate green hydrogen at a dedicated electrolysis facility in the Humber region.
Dogger Bank D would be located in the eastern zone of the Dogger Bank C lease area, more than doubling the utilisation of existing acreage. The project’s progression remains subject to agreement with The Crown Estate.
