The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is an exciting £1.5 billion project to harness offshore wind to power more than 410,000 UK homes. This 402MW offshore wind farm will be located some 20 miles off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk.
All the offshore and onshore construction consents have been in place for this wind farm since late 2012, and it is now scheduled to be completed and fully commissioned by late 2017.
Through the joint venture company Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, it is owned by Statoil, Statkraft and Masdar.
Statoil and Statkraft are two leading Norwegian energy companies and Masdar is an international investor in renewable energy and sustainable technology based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Statoil is developing the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm and will continue as its operator when it starts generating electricity in early 2017.
