Equinor’s and SSE’s Dogger Financial institution is the world’s largest offshore wind farm. It’s being in-built three phases — A, B, and C — off England’s northeast coast. And section C will see GE’s 14MW Haliade-X generators, upgraded from 13MW (beforehand probably the most highly effective offshore wind turbine in operation), deployed for the primary time.
GE Renewable Power is supplying 190 Haliade-X 13MW offshore wind generators for the Dogger Bank‘s phases A and B. That’s 95 wind generators for every section.
As Electrek previously reported, A and B was the most important single order ever for offshore wind generators, in accordance with Dogger Financial institution Wind Farm. Turbine set up is anticipated to begin in 2023 at Dogger Financial institution A.
And GE Renewable Power as we speak introduced it has been confirmed as the popular turbine provider for Dogger Financial institution C as properly, however they’re going to go even larger.
GE will present an upgraded 14MW model of its Haliade-X turbine for section C, which can turn into the world’s strongest offshore wind generators. A turbine provide settlement and accompanying service and guarantee agreements between GE and Dogger Financial institution C is anticipated to finalize within the first quarter of 2021.
Set up of the Dogger Financial institution C generators is about to start in 2025 forward of completion of the entire challenge in 2026.
Every 1.2 GW section — 3.6 GW in complete — is anticipated to generate round 6 TWh of electrical energy yearly, and the whole challenge will likely be able to powering as much as 6 UK million properties every year as soon as it’s full.
Steve Wilson, Dogger Financial institution Wind Farm challenge director at SSE Renewables, stated:
[We are] delighted to be working with GE Renewable Power on all three phases of our growth, as the primary wind farm on the planet to put in their modern and record-breaking Haliade-X turbine know-how.
Along with GE we’re persevering with to cleared the path on innovation within the offshore wind trade and we’re proud that Dogger Financial institution will now use a 14MW turbine at Dogger Financial institution C alongside the 13MW turbine already confirmed for phases A and B.
