01 July 2014 Green light for Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm
Statoil and Statkraft have decided to start building the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm off the coast of Norfolk, UK. The project aims for full production in late 2017.
Enough 'green' electricity to power more than 410,000 UK homes each year.
The two Norwegian energy companies, Statoil and Statkraft, acquired the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project in October 2012 through the acquisition of all the shares in Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, a subsidiary of the UK energy company Warwick Energy Limited.
Following a successful partnership developing the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm off the coast of North Norfolk, Statoil and Statkraft are now working together to develop the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, of which Statoil will be the Operator for both the construction and operational phases.
The Round 2 Licence from the Crown Estate for the development of this offshore wind farm was granted in 2003, but it took until late 2012 for all the construction consents to be finally put in place.
