The 402MW project, located some 32 kilometres off the coast of Norfolk, saw the last of its 67 Siemens 6MW wind turbines being installed in early September, with the entire wind farm producing electricity shortly after.

Following the testing of the last turbines, the Dudgeon wind farm was fully commissioned and started delivering power to the grid in October. On 4 October, Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) announced that the final phase of the offshore wind farm had passed all of its Operational Conditions Precedent and started to receive Contracts for Difference (CfD) payments.

The Dudgeon offshore wind farm was completed below the budget of GBP 1.5 billion that was set when the investment decision was made in 2014.

Statoil and Masdar each hold a 35% share in the Dudgeon wind farm, with the remaining 30% being owned by Statkraft. This summer, Statktraft commenced the formal divestment processes for its share in the offshore wind farm, with the aim to complete the transaction early next year.
