UK Port of Tyne Touts Renewable Energy Hub (Int'l. Report)
Port of Tyne
Date: 2020-11-09
In the UK, the Port of Tyne is touting the launch of the Tyne Clean Energy Park as versatile strategic base for the region's rapidly growing renewable energy sector supporting the Government's goal to power every UK home with offshore wind electricity.

As previously reported, the Port was selected as Equinor's flagship operations and maintenance base for what will become the world's largest offshore wind farm at Dogger Bank.

The River Tyne presently hostso an existing offshore cluster, including South Tyneside Marine College, A&P, Smulders Projects, Shepherd Offshore and TechnipFMC, all of which contributeto a well-established offshore energy supply chain. The Port of Tyne is one of only two deep sea ports in the North-East UK.

GE Touting 13MW Offshore Wind Turbine (Ind. Report)
GE Renewable Energy
Date: 2020-10-26
GE Renewable Energy reports a working version of its 13MW Haliade-X prototype set a record for a single day of electric power generation at 228MWh -- sufficient power for roughly 45 Australian homes for an entire year.

The 13MW Haliade-X is GE's largest turbine ever, standing 248 metres tall with 107 metre long blades, offering almost double the generation capacity of most wind turbines currently deployed around the world.

130 units of the 13MW turbine is expected to be deployed at the UK's Dogger Bank Wind Farm starting in 2023. GE notes it has secured 4.8GW worth of orders for the Haliade-X turbine model from U.S. and UK wind projects.

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.

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.
