Site depth range: The Dogger Bank ranges in depth from 13 m to 58 m below sea-level. Dogger Bank (UK) Equinor and its partner SSE Renewables have been awarded contracts to develop the world's biggest offshore wind farm in the Dogger Bank region of the North Sea with a total installed capacity of 3.6 GW, enough energy to power the equivalent of 4.5 million UK homes. Dogger Bank is an interesting location, because: It is a shallow area on a windy spot It may function as centre of offshore HV grid Water depth is an important factor in the cost of Offshore Wind. The name comes from dogger, an old Dutch word for fishing boat, especially for catching cod. ... Renewable Energy 101 In Depth. Doggerland eventually became submerged leaving only Dogger Bank, a possible moraine (accumulation of glacial debris) an island until around 5000BC when Dogger Bank also succumbed to the sea. Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a group of offshore wind farms under construction 125 to 290 kilometres (78 to 180 mi) off the east coast of Yorkshire, in the North Sea, United Kingdom. The extent of Dogger Bank is in this document defined at a depth of approximately 40 meters below sea level, according to a bathymetry map by Ramboll (2014) (Figure 5). Water depth on the Dogger Bank is between -20 and -40m Area – 30 m = 11.400 km2 ~ space for 80 GW When completed, the Dogger Bank Wind Farm will have a total output of 3.6 GW, enough to supply 5% of all the electricity consumed in the UK. Located in the North Sea, approximately 130km from the Yorkshire Coast. An expedition to dive the unidentified wrecks of Dogger Bank. About Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farms: Consent was granted in 2015. Dogger Bank will transport the offshore wind sector into the global energy big league, at a development sticker price of around $10bn rivalling the biggest oil & gas projects now taking shape and providing a life-line for a supply chain struggling to make ends meet as the world shifts power sources in the energy transition.. It was developed by the Forewind consortium, while three phases were envisioned - first phase (Creyke Beck A and B), second phase (Teesside A and B) and third phase (Teesside C and D). The Dogger Bank is a large sand bank located in Danish, German, Dutch and UK waters (Figure 1). Charting Progress 2 Biogeographic Region: Southern North Sea. The water depth ranges from 15 to 36 metres (from 49 to 118 feet), about 20 m (66 ft) shallower than the surrounding sea. Water depth ranges from 20m to 35m. Each project will have an installed capacity of 1.2 GW and will be able to power 1.5 million homes. It is a productive fishing bank. Site area: 12,331 km 2 – Dogger Bank is approximately five times the size of the Lake District National Park (2,292 km 2). Eni has entered into agreements with Equinor and SSE Renewables to acquire 10 per cent stake in Dogger Bank A and B from each, which will lead to a shareholding setup of SSE and Equinor each owning 40 per cent and Eni holding 20 per cent in the first two phases of what will become the world's biggest offshore wind farm. It was not until 700 years after the Storegga landslides — around 5500 BC — that the sea level rose so much that the North Sea engulfed the rest of the Dogger Bank.
