The Dogger Bank A offshore substation is now ocean-bound, having received its final send-off last week from the Aibel construction yard in Thailand. This substation is the largest module ever built at Aibel’s yard in Thailand, weighing 6,780 tonnes.

The substation has now begun its journey to Norway for further fabrication work before installation in 2023 off the UK’s North East coast at the world’s largest wind project, the 3.6 GW Dogger Bank wind farm.

Located off the north-east coast of England, Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being built in three 1.2 GW phases,
Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B, and Dogger Bank C.

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture partnership between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%), and Eni (20%). SSE Renewables will to lead on the development and construction of Dogger Bank Wind Farm, and Equinor will operate the asset on completion.  

Once the three phases are complete, the project is expected to generate around 18 TWh annually, enough renewable electricity to supply 5% of the UK’s demand and equivalent to powering six million UK homes.
