Statoil and Statkraft have signed a letter of intent that Statoil takes over as operator of the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm from January 2017. Statoil will also through this deal increase its share in the Dogger Bank projects.
Statoil and Statkraft each hold a 40 per cent share in Sheringham Shoal, with 20 per cent held by the UK Green Investment Bank. Sheringham Shoal is located off the coast of Norfolk, it has been in operation since 2012 and has a capacity of 317 MW. Statoil is also increasing its share in the Dogger Bank projects, with the desire of bringing Statoil’s total ownership from 25 per cent up to a potential of 50 per cent through an acquisition of Statkraft’s share in Dogger Bank. The final shareholding in Dogger Bank, and the transfer of operatorship for Sheringham Shoal, is pending partner and government approvals. Dogger Bank has achieved consent for an agreed target installed capacity of 4800MW.
