Final Dudgeon Turbine Takes Shape

A2SEA’s wind turbine installation vessel Sea Challenger has installed the last of the 67 Siemens 6MW wind turbines on the 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm.

The vessel loaded the first turbine parts at the Port of Hull and installed them at the site some 32 kilometres off North Norfolk in January 2017.

The wind farm started delivering electricity to the National Grid in early February.

The Dudgeon offshore wind farm is a GBP 1.5 billion project being jointly developed by Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft, expected to be fully commissioned by late 2017.

Statoil is developing the Dudgeon offshore wind farm and will continue as its operator.
