Heerema bags Dogger Bank C offshore substation contract

A contract for the transport and installation of the Dogger Bank C offshore substation has been awarded to the Dutch Heerema Marine Contractors by SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Eni.

The 3,500 metric ton jacket foundation, four main piles, and the 9,500 metric ton offshore substation topside will be transported and installed. As part of the offshore lifting process, Heerema will use main pilings to secure the jacket foundation in place on the scour bed. Settling on a jacket foundation requires the lifting of an offshore substation by barge first.

World’s largest offshore wind farm

The Dogger Bank Wind Farm project, a joint venture offshore wind farm being built off the north-east coast of England by SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Eni, includes this project as part of the third phase. Since it is so large, Dogger Bank is being constructed in three 1.2GW phases: Dogger Bank A, B, and C. Dogger Bank C is approximately 560 square kilometers in area and is located 196 kilometers from the coast. Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being developed and built by SSE Renewables, with Equinor taking over operation of the wind farm once it is complete, with an expected lifespan of 35 years.

Once operational in 2026, Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm, with a total capacity of 3.6GW. To put it another way, the wind farm is expected to generate enough renewable electricity to meet 5% of the country’s current demand, which is the equivalent of powering six million homes.
