SSE has confirmed the formation of a joint venture (JV) partnership with Statoil. The 50:50 partnership will see both companies work collaboratively to progress three of the four consented Dogger Bank Offshore Wind projects towards Financial Investment Decisions.

The Dogger Bank zone consists of four 1.2GW offshore wind projects. Located between 125 and 195 km off the east coast of Yorkshire it extends over approximately 8,660km2 and, once completed will have a total generating capacity of up to 4.8GW. Offshore wind consortium Forewind was originally awarded consents for the Dogger Bank development in 2015. The new JV, SSE and Statoil, will work to progress three of these projects, Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A, Dogger Bank Creyke Beck B and Dogger Bank Teesside A, which total 3.6GW. The remaining project, Dogger Bank Teesside B will be progressed by innogy.
