We have been appointed to build the operations and maintenance base which will support the world’s largest offshore sustainable energy resource – Dogger Bank wind farm.
The Port of Tyne-based facility will be in line with the UK Green Building Council’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework and will meet net zero operational requirements..
Our North East and Scotland region has been appointed to perform detailed design and to build the facility, including office space, central control room, a large warehouse, car parking and HGV yard as well as an outside recreational area.
B+K Project Manager, Liz Wilson, said: “Our region is immensely proud to be representing Dogger Bank for this new development that will attract some of the region’s leading professionals. It is fantastic that we have been successful in our bid for this high-profile project and that we are able to provide support and sustainability to our region and local supply chain especially after the last 18 months.”
Dogger Bank Wind Farm Director, Steve Wilson, said: “With its low carbon materials, solar panels and EV charging points, we hope this locally-designed base will help inspire future developers as the UK continues on its journey to net zero. Once again Dogger Bank Wind Farm has pushed the boundaries of what’s possible to drive positive improvements in low carbon development.”
Dogger Bank wind farm will be located more than 130km off the North East coast of England and when complete will generate around 5% of the UK’s electricity. It is a joint project between Energy companies Equinor, SSE Reneweables and Eni. Equinor will manage the Operations and Maintenance base.
Halfdan Brustad, vice president for Dogger Bank at Equinor, said: “This modern and attractive facility will support over 200 people working directly on Dogger Bank, and be a proud base at the heart of the North East for teams working on the world’s largest offshore wind farm.”
