GE Renewable Energy named preferred supplier for Dogger Bank C

In: TurbinesWindfarms
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 wind farm, which will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm once complete in 2026.

The agreement includes the upscaled Haliade-X 14 MW wind turbine and a Service Supply Agreement to provide operations and maintenance support for five years. The Turbine Supply Agreement and Service and Warranty Agreements for Dogger Bank C, will be finalised in the first quarter of 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 to supply Haliade-X turbine technology to all three phases of Dogger Bank Wind Farm including an order for 190 units of GE’s 13 MW Haliade-X for
Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, which was announced in September.

John Lavelle, President & CEO, Offshore Wind at GE Renewable Energy, said, “Dogger Bank C will use a 14 MW version of the Haliade-X, the most powerful offshore wind turbine in operation today. In doing so, this unique project will both continue to build on the UK's leadership in offshore wind and serve as a showcase for innovative technology that is helping to provide more clean, renewable energy."

Steve Wilson, Dogger Bank Wind Farm’s Project Director at SSE Renewables, said: “We’re delighted to be working with GE Renewable Energy on all three phases of our development, as the first wind farm in the world to install their innovative and record-breaking Haliade-X turbine technology. Together with GE we are continuing to lead the way on innovation in the offshore wind industry and we’re proud that Dogger Bank will now use a 14 MW turbine at Dogger Bank C alongside the 13 MW turbine already confirmed for phases A and B.”

The Dogger Bank wind farms are located more than 130 km from the Yorkshire coast. Due to its size and scale, the project is being built in three consecutive 1.2 GW phases. The project partners reached financial close on the first two phases,
Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, at the beginning of December. Further to Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, the project companies are also developing the Dogger Bank C project, for which it is expected that a financial decision will come in late 2021.

The projects will be capable of powering up to 4.5 UK million homes each year when complete in 2026.
Each project is expected to generate around 6 TWh of electricity annually. They the result of are a joint venture between Equinor and SSE Renewables. Eni recently entered an agreement to take a 20% stake in the first two phases when transactions are complete in Q1 2021.
