Dogger Bank Wind Farms has unveiled GE Renewable Energy as its preferred turbine supplier. Under the new deal, GE Renewable Energy will supply Dogger Bank with its Haliade-X turbine. The final number of turbines to be installed at Dogger Bank will be confirmed in due course.
Dogger Bank Wind Farms is a 50:50 joint venture between Equinor and SSE Renewables. The overall offshore wind farm comprises three 1.2GW projects located in the North Sea, approximately 130 kilometres from the UK’s Yorkshire Coast. The projects were recently successful in the latest Contracts for Difference Allocation Round, the UK Government’s auction for renewable power. SSE Renewables will lead the development and construction phases of Dogger Bank and Equinor will lead on operations once completed. The Dogger Bank projects will have a combined capacity of up to 3.6GW.
