The developers of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm have revealed the design for the multi-million pound Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Base at the Port of Tyne, that will serve the world’s biggest offshore wind farm.
Subject to planning approval, the base will be constructed in the Port of Tyne. It will serve as the main hub for operating the wind farm which when complete will be capable of providing around 5% of the UK’s electricity demand.
SSE Renewables is leading on construction of the wind farm and Equinor will operate the wind farm for its lifetime of up to 35 years, creating over 200 direct jobs in the North East of England.
The facility has been designed using environmentally friendly materials, with EV chargers, solar panels and efficient heating systems to ensure the facility has a low carbon footprint.
