GE Renewable Energy finalises Dogger Bank turbine contracts

GE Renewable Energy finalises contracts for the final phase of the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm.

By Umesh Ellichipuram

GE Renewable Energy has finalised the turbine supply contracts for Dogger Bank C, the third and final phase of the Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm.

With the contract, GE Renewable Energy has finalised all contracts for the 3.6GW wind farm located in the North Sea offshore from Yorkshire, UK.

The company will supply 87 units of its Haliade-X 14MW offshore wind turbines for the project.

The contract is subject to financial close for Dogger Bank C, which is expected later this year.

GE Renewable Energy and Dogger Bank have also finalised the service and warranty contract.

The five-year contract will begin after Dogger Bank C is commissioned in 2026.

GE Renewable Energy Offshore Wind Business president and CEO John Lavelle said: “Bringing the Haliade-X 14 MW to the third phase of the project proves that GE has the technology and know-how to address the fast-paced changes in the offshore industry.

“With all contracts signed, we are now looking forward to the next phases of our collaboration with Dogger Bank. We will together make a big contribution to the UK’s ever-accelerating energy transition.”

The project is expected to create a total of 470 jobs.

During the installation of wind turbines in the project’s three phases, the company expects to create up to 300 direct jobs.

So far, 120 positions have been announced, all of which will be based in Teesside from Able Seaton Port.

The company will also create roughly 50 additional operations and maintenance jobs, which will be based on the Port of Tyne, for Dogger Bank C.

Dogger Bank C is equally owned by SSE Renewables (50%) and Equinor (50%).

Dogger Bank A and B are owned by SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%) and Eni (20%).

Last month, GE Renewable Energy signed an onshore wind turbines supply contract with US-based power generation company Invenergy for three wind farms in Oklahoma.

The North Central Wind Energy Facilities comprises three farms being developed by Invenerg, namely the Traverse, Maverick and Sundance Wind Energy Centres.

The farms, with a combined capacity of 1485MW, will be owned by American Electric Power (AEP) once completed.
