Summary

The Crown Estate (TCE), an independent organization, established by statute, headed by a Board and in charge of Britain's coastal seabed, is planning to undertake the construction of Wind Farm Development in Dogger Bank offshore Zone, the UK.

The project involves the construction of offshore wind farm with an installed capacity of 4,800MW and is planned to be implemented in four sites. The total zone area is 8,660km2 with 18m and 63m minimum and maximum depths respectively.

The sites are as follows:

Creyke BeckA (Dogger Bank), Creyke BeckB (Dogger Bank), Teesside A (Dogger Bank) and Teesside B (Dogger Bank), each site has a projected installed capacity of 1,200MW each.

The project includes the installation of more than 330 turbines and transmission wires, the construction of power house and other related facilities.

In June 2008, TCE announced proposals for the third round of offshore wind farm leasing. The bid and award process for the developer contract was concluded at the end of 2009.

The development partners were to lead the early stages of development of the zone and identify potential wind farm sites to take forward.

In December 2009, developer contract was awarded to Forewind, a consortium of Scottish and Southern Energy plc, RWE Npower renewables, the UK subsidiary of RWE Innogy, Statkraft and Statoil.

TCE is undertaking a number of enabling actions. These commenced in 2009 and include aerial bird surveys, marine mammal research and funding for the industry aviation plan. The overall purpose is to de-risk and accelerate development within Round III.

In April 2011, Forewind, development partner for the Dogger Bank offshore wind farm zone, commenced its preliminary onshore surveys as part of its investigations into potential corridors for the onshore underground cables that will connect its first wind farm project with the national grid at the Creyke Beck substation, near Cottingham in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

As well as investigating cable route options, the work will assess possible locations for the new converter stations required for the grid connection.

In September 2013, the developers submitted the planning application for two wind schemes with a capacity of up to 1.2GW and the regulator has a deadline until September 26, 2013 to review the application.

In October 2013, Forewind consortium started the final environmental survey for the first six 1,200MW of the 9,000MW Dogger Bank project, however in February 2014, Forewind revised the development potential for the Dogger Bank project from 9000MW to 7200MW.

In May 2014, the consenting authority has accepted an application made by Forewind Limited for a development consent order for the offshore development Dogger Bank. The Application was made on March 28, 2014, and accepted for examination on April 23, 2014.

In July 2014, TCE initiated the process of revising the contractual arrangements with the developers.

On February 17, 2015, project secured planning approvals for Dogger Bank (Creyke BeckA and Creyke BeckB) Zone III with a combined installed capacity of 2,400MW.

In August 2015, project secured approval for Teesside A&B from government and 2,400MW Dogger Bank Teesside C & D Projects have been cancelled and removed from Crown Estate portfolio.

In March 2016, Forewind has awarded Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and SeaRoc team with the contract for the 2016 operations and maintenance (O&M) work on the two meteorological masts collecting data at Dogger Bank.

The project is waiting for the Contract for Difference (CfD), a form of Government subsidy to develop the project, which helps in the cost-reduction benefits.
