Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm Construction Underway (Int'l.)
SSE Renewables
Date: 2020-01-20
SSE Renewables is reporting construction is underway on the world's largest offshore wind farm -- Dogger Bank Wind Farms -- a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor -- near the coastal village of Ulrome, East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

Dogger Bank Wind Farms is comprised of three offshore wind farm sites in the North Sea, totaling 3.6 GW -- Creyke Beck A (1.2GW), Creyke Beck B (1.2GW) and Teesside A (1.2GW). The three wind farms will make use of the world's most powerful turbine, GE's Haliade-X, and will be capable of generating sufficient power for over 4.5 million homes each year.

Jones Bros Civil Engineering, one of the UK's leading civil engineering contractors, headquartered in Ruthin, North Wales, has been awarded the contract to install the onshore cable infrastructure for the Creyke Beck A and Creyke Beck B sites. The onshore infrastructure includes the installation of approximately 20 miles of electrical cables that will connect to the existing National Grid substation at Creyke Beck, Cottingham. The works will also involve completing bulk earthworks at the onshore HVDC convertor station locations in East Riding.

GE Renewable Energy
Date: 2019-10-02
GE Renewable Energy reports receipt of a preferred supplier agreement to deliver as many as 300 of its Haliade-X turbines for the giant 3.6 GW Dogger Bank complex of three, 1.2GW wind farms being constructed off the UK by a developer consortium made up of Equinor and SSE.

The Dogger Bank order, which hinges on a final investment decision expected before the end of next year, would kick-off a £9 billion ($11 billion) capital investment by the developers. Once fully operational, Dogger Bank will supply sufficient power for more than 4.5 million homes -- 5 pct of the UK's estimated electric power generation. Construction is set to get underway early next year for power production in 2023.

UK Holding $25Bn Offshore Wind Farm Sites Auction (Int'l Report)
Crown Estate,Offshore Wind
Date: 2019-09-23
Further to our 30th August report, the Crown Estate in the UK is reported to have launched its first major auction of offshore wind farm leases in a decade, offering four new sites -- Dogger Bank Bidding Area, Eastern Regions Bidding Area, South East Bidding Area and Northern Wales and the Irish Sea Bidding Area -- with the combined potential of 7-8.5 GW -- sufficient power for more than six million UK homes. The first seabed rights could be awarded in early 2021, Crown Estate said.

The UK plans to generate one-third of its electricity from wind power by 2030 as part of efforts to reach its 2050 net-zero carbon emissions target.

Crown Estate acts as manager of the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Crown Estate Scotland is expected to launch an offshore wind seabed licensing round for sites off the Scottish coast in October.

Statoil,SSE,Statkraft
Date: 2017-03-31
Further to our March 24th coverage, Oslo-headquartered oil and gas producer Statoil and Britain's SSE report they have both acquired an additional stake in the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind development site, in the North Sea off the east coast of England.

Last week, both Statoil and SSE announced they had both increased their individual stakes in the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind development site by 12.5 pct -- acquired from original consortium partner, Norway's hydropower company Statkraft. This brings the owning consortium down to three partners -- SSE and Statoil, both of which now hold a 37.5 pct stake in the project, and German energy company RWE Innogy, which retains its original 25 pct.

The Dogger Bank Offshore Wind site includes four separate projects with a combined capacity of 4.8 gigawatts (GW).
