    March 15, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      March 15 (Renewables Now) - SSE Renewables, Equinor ASA (NYSE:EQNR) and Vargronn, the developers of Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the UK, on Tuesday held an opening ceremony for the wind park’s operations and maintenance (O&M) base at the Port of Tyne.

      Located in the North Sea, more than 130 km (81 miles) from the Yorkshire coast, the 3.6-GW Dogger Bank project is being built in three phases of 1.2 GW each. It is set to become the world’s largest offshore wind farm when completed in 2026.

      The large wind power plant will be operated from the Port of Tyne base for the next 35 years. According to the announcement, more than 400 long-term roles have been created locally to support its operations and maintenance.

      The opening ceremony was attended by 150 employees and guests, including Minister of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, Graham Stuart. "The UK already boasts the four largest offshore wind farms in the world and I am delighted that Dogger Bank will overtake all of them in three years’ time,” he remarked.
