Ryder Geotechnical has completed site-specific assessment (SSA) at the turbine locations of the first two phases of the Dogger Bank offshore wind project.
Ryder completed a geotechnical zonation assessment to classify the 190 turbine locations in terms of geotechnical risk to the upcoming jack-up operations at Dogger Bank A and B.
According to the company, the aim of the activities was to also provide vertical-horizontal bearing capacities and fixity parameters.
The work was done in collaboration with Global Maritime.
Dogger Bank is being built in three equal phases of 1.2 GW each and, once commissioned, will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm.
Dogger Bank A and B, owned by Equinor, SSE Renewables and Eni, will feature 190 Haliade-X 13 MW turbines, scheduled to deliver first electricity in 2023.
Dogger Bank C, owned by Equinor and SSE Renewables, will comprise 87 GE Haliade-X 14 MW units. It is being developed on a different timescale with the operation date set for 2026.
