The construction of the wind farm is expected to finish in 2026.

Construction of the world’s largest offshore wind farm has begun on Dogger Bank, a sandy bank in the central North Sea, 100 kilometers off the UK coast.

The project is a joint venture between Norwegian energy company Equinor, Italy’s Eni Plenitude and UK utility SSE Renewables.

As a first step in the construction of the park, the first section of high-voltage direct current submarine cable was installed off the Yorkshire coast.

“With the first foundations to be laid later this year and the first turbines scheduled to be installed in 2023, we are now well on our way to achieving first power from this unrivaled global renewable energy asset,” he pointed project manager Steve Wilson.

Meanwhile, the wind farm will be developed in three phases: A, B and C, and once completed in 2026 it will have a ability installed capacity of 3.6 gigawatts to power up to 6 million homes in the UK.
