The civil engineering works for the 3.6GW Dogger Bank offshore wind farm have been resumed by the main contractor Jones Bros. These on-shore infrastructure activities for electrical cabling covering approximately 130km are rolled out after a scheduled winter break.
In addition, Jones Bros has included more teams for preparation of the first delivery of high voltage cabling this summer along a 32km route to make the land-based connection for the scheme. The team size is currently 70 on-site including a second trenching team, while it was 100 on site during the last autumn.
The world’s biggest offshore wind farm- Dogger Bank wind farm is being developed in three 1.2GW phases: Dogger Bank A, B and C. Dogger Bank A and B is a joint venture between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%) and Eni (20%). Dogger Bank C alone is a 50:50 joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor.
The installation of onshore cable infrastructure for Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B will be taken care of by Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK. Also, the contractor will undertake the bulk earthworks at the converter station locations south of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Alongside, the contractor has also started preparatory work on other parts of the site. These works include construction of the first joint bays, where the undersea connection transitions onto land. These will be taken into place as the work progresses.
