The Dogger Bank project received 8 billion dollars of investment
|According to sources, the project of the world's largest offshore wind farm Dogger Bank attracted $ 8 billion in investment. |
Norwegian oil giant Equinor and British utility company SSE have invested a total of 6 billion pounds in the project, which corresponds to 8.03 billion dollars.
The Dogger Bank power plant will generate 3.6 GW of power. For comparison, the Walney Extension station launched in 2018, which at that time was the largest among offshore stations, is characterized by a capacity of 659 MW.
Dogger Bank will be built and put into operation in three stages of 1.2 GW each. It is expected that the first will be completed in 2023, the second — a year later, but the third will be completed only in 2026.
This power plant will also stand out because it will be the first to use the new General Electric (GE) Haliade-x turbines. These are the largest turbines at the moment, designed to generate 13 MW of power each.
In the end, this power plant alone will be able to meet 5% of all UK electricity needs, which is equivalent to the needs of 6 million households in the country.
In General, the UK plans to increase the total capacity of offshore wind farms to 40 GW by 2030.
