Work has begun to install the first length of cable for what will be the world’s largest wind farm, firing the starting pistol on offshore construction.

Energy Voice has reported that tier one supplier NKT is leading the work to fit the Dogger Bank A nearshore, HVDC export cable off the coast of Yorkshire.

It will connect the first phase of the mammoth wind farm, more than 80 miles out to sea, to a landfall point in East Riding.

Aberdeenshire-based ACE Winches and LMR Drilling UK of Birkenhead are among the companies supporting NKT on the installation. The campaign will continue throughout the course of 2022 – work to install export cables for Dogger Bank B and Dogger Bank C will take place in the following years.

Dogger Bank, which is being built in three 1.2 gigawatt (GW) phases, will be the first HVDC connected wind farm in the UK.

It aims to pave the way for other UK wind farms and suppliers to transmit renewable energy safely and efficiently across long distances while minimising potential losses.
