Equinor and SSE Renewables plan to build a new Operations and Maintenance (O&M) base at the Port of Tyne, UK, to service the 3.6 GW Dogger Bank offshore wind project.

The construction of the wind farm, led by SSE Renewables, began in January 2020. As the operator for the operations phase, Equinor will construct this new O&M base, and operate the wind farm for its expected life of more than 25 years.

 

The new facility, which includes both office space and a warehouse, will be the onshore base for Equinor’s teams. The project is expected to generate over 200 direct jobs in the region, as well as opportunities for companies at all levels of the supply chain.

 

The Dogger Bank Wind Farm is estimated to trigger a total capital investment of approximately GBP 9 billion between 2020 and 2026.
