    Hughes Subsea to install cathodic protection at Dogger Bank A turbines

    September 30, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 30 (Renewables Now) - UK firm Hughes Subsea Services Ltd has signed a contract with Dogger Bank Wind Farm to provide anode installation services on the 1.2-GW Dogger Bank A, the first phase of the wind farm, the parties said on Thursday.

      Hughes will provide vessel, crew and equipment for the internal anode installation campaign. It will install the internal cathodic protection systems across Dogger Bank A’s 95 turbines, using a walk-to-work offshore support vessel. Work is expected to start in the second quarter of 2023 and to be completed in two months.

      The cathodic protection systems, to be supplied by South Tyneside company Metec UK, are aimed at protecting turbines from corrosion during their operational lifetime.

      The three-phase 3.6-GW Dogger Bank project is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Eni Plenitude. It will be located between 130 km (81 miles) and 190 km from the northeastern coast of England and will use a total of 277 GE turbines of 13 MW and 14 MW.

      The deal with Hughes is expected to support up to 60 jobs in the UK supply chain.
