Dogger Bank Wind Farm and GE Renewable Energy have confirmed GE as preferred turbine supplier for Dogger Bank C, announcing at the same time plans to pioneer the upscaled 14MW Haliade-X turbine for this phase. The 14MW Haliade-X is an upscaled version of the 13MW Haliade-X, the most powerful turbine in operation today, and installation at Dogger Bank C will mark the first time these turbines will be installed at any project world-wide. The Turbine Supply Agreement and Service and Warranty Agreements for Dogger Bank C will be finalised in the first quarter of 2021, confirming the order and number of turbines and marking continued progress in the delivery of the third phase of the wind farm. These agreements will be subject to Dogger Bank C, which is a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor, reaching Financial Close in late 2021. Installation of the turbines for Dogger Bank C is set to begin in 2025 ahead of completion of the overall project in 2026.
