UK authorities have announced that Equinor and its partner SSE were awarded contracts to develop three large scale offshore wind projects in the Dogger Bank region of the North Sea with a total installed capacity of 3.6GW.
The Dogger Bank wind farm will consist of three projects, Creyke Beck A, Creyke Beck B and Teesside A. The clearing prices for the projects are GBP 39.650 per MWh for Creyke Beck A and GBP 41.611 per MWh for the Creyke Beck B and the Teesside A projects. The contracts offer a fixed price for the first 15 years of operation. The partners are planning for final investment decision for the first project during 2020 and first power generation is planned for 2023. Further phases of the Dogger Bank project will be developed thereafter. The joint venture has selected SSE as the lead operator during the project construction phase and Equinor the lead operator for operations.
