GE Renewable Energy has been confirmed as the preferred turbine supplier for Dogger Bank C, the 1.2-GW third phase of the 3.6-GW Dogger Bank offshore windfarm
The windfarm is a 50:50 joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor that will become the world’s largest offshore windfarm when complete in 2026.
The deal includes the upscaled Haliade-X 14 MW wind turbine and a service supply agreement to provide operations and maintenance support for five years.
The agreement for Dogger Bank C will be finalised in Q1 2021. Installation of the turbines for Dogger Bank C is set to begin in 2025 ahead of completion of the overall project in 2026.
GE is now confirmed as supplying Haliade-X turbine technology to all three phases of Dogger Bank.
The Dogger Bank windfarm is more than 130 km off the northeast coast of England and will be capable of powering the equivalent of up to 6M homes each year when complete in 2026.
Due to its size and scale, the site is being built in three consecutive phases: Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B and Dogger Bank C. Each project is expected to generate around 6 TWh of electricity annually.
