The United Kingdom will build the world’s largest marine wind power plant with a capacity of 3.6 GW

Within the framework of the Dogger Bank project, SSE Renewables and Equinor will create the world’s largest shelf wind power plant, which will provide 5% of the UK power consumption.

The project must be implemented until 2026 in three stages, each of which provides for the addition of 1.2 GW of power. Within the framework of the first two near the British coast, the 95 largest HALIADE-X GE Renewable Energy with a capacity of 13 MW will be installed on the largest wind generators.

With each turnover of their 220-meter rotor, electricity will be made to power the typical British house for more than two days.

Although the decision at the last stage of the Dogger Bank will be made before the end of the year, but there are preliminary construction work on land. According to technical and economic calculations, at the first stage, income for each MW ∙ h will be $ 51.54, and 2 and 3 — $ 54.09.

The prototype of the GENERAL ELECTRIC HALIADE-X platform by 12 MW operates in Rotterdam since 2019. In the north-east of Great Britain, improved models will establish, but with identical size of the rotor and blades. At the same time, Siemens Gamesa is already developing a larger turbine by 14 MW.

In parallel, the UK began to lay the longest underwater power supply line today
