Dogger Bank, world’s largest wind farm, gets construction financing


British utility SSE (SSE.L) and Norwegian energy company Equinor (EQNR.OL) have secured financing to proceed with the construction of the 3 billion pound ($3.98 billion) Dogger Bank C offshore wind farm in Britain, the companies said on Thursday.

Dogger Bank C will have a capacity of 1,200 megawatts (MW) and generate about 6,000 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity a year when completed in 2026, the companies said.

It is the third phase of what the partners say will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm, with installed capacity of 3,600 MW. The companies said this is enough renewable energy to supply 5% of Britain’s demand, equivalent to six million homes.
