Dogger Bank is the world’s biggest offshore wind farm under development. When complete it will be able to provide enough electricity for 6 million UK households. It is located off the north east coast of England.
The windfarm is being built in three phases known as Dogger Bank A, B and C. While work in the North Sea hasn’t started yet, construction work began last year on a cable route for Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B that will run approximately 30km from Ulrome in East Riding, to the national electricity network at the Creyke Beck substation, south of Beverley.
Dogger Bank Wind Farm has been developed as a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor (50:50), and ENI has a 20% stake in the first two phases, known as Dogger Bank A and B.
- SSE Renewables is a leading developer, owner and operator of renewable energy across the UK and Ireland, with a portfolio of around 4GW of onshore wind, offshore wind and hydro.

- Equinor has been operating in the UK for over 35 years. Headquartered in Norway, the company employs 22,000 people globally, and over 650 in the UK. As a broad energy company, Equinor is committed to long term value creation in a low carbon future, and targeting carbon neutral operations globally by 2030.
