Wind Energy – Dogger Bank
Jan De Nul Group’s newest jack-up installation vessel Voltaire recently installed her very first offshore wind turbine at Dogger Bank.
Soon after installing the first of 277 wind turbines, this first turbine has produced first power.
The installation and first power of the first GE Haliade-X turbine at Dogger Bank A was confirmed today.
The turbine blades tips reach 260 meters above sea level; the same height as New York’s iconic Rockefeller Centre. Each blade is 107 meters long.
Project Director for Dogger Bank, Olly Cass said: “The installation of the first turbine at Dogger Bank A is an important moment for our workforce, our suppliers and of course our project partners on the path to first power which will be a landmark moment as we start to generate electricity for the first time. Dogger Bank is a major infrastructure project which is benefitting the economy as well as supporting the UK’s future energy security and making a major contribution to the UK’s ambitious Net Zero targets.”
