Dogger Bank Teesside A&B Application Moves Forward

The UK Planning Inspectorate submitted a report of recommendation for Forewind’s Dogger Bank Teesside A&B offshore wind project to the Secretary of State on May 5.

The Secretary of State will issue a decision in the following three months.

Dogger Bank Teesside is Forewind’s second stage of development of the Dogger Bank Zone. Originally planned to be four separate wind farms known collectively as Dogger Bank Teesside, this stage has been divided into two separate applications – Dogger Bank Teesside A & B and Dogger Bank Teesside C & D.

Dogger Bank Teesside A & B will comprise two wind farms, each with a maximum installed capacity of 1.2GW, meaning that with a total generating capacity of up to 2.4 GW Dogger Bank Teesside A & B has the potential to generate around 8 Terawatt hours (TWh) of green power every year, which is equivalent to the electricity used annually by approximately two million British homes.
