Yesterday, the inauguration of world’s most powerful turbine, GE’s Haliade-X, was held in Rotterdam. The turbine will be powering Dogger Bank Wind Farm, a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor, the first project in Europe to deploy the 12MW machine that has been named one of the Best 100 inventions of 2019 by Time Magazine.
Dogger Bank Wind Farm is delighted to announce OHT as its preferred supplier for foundation installation at the pioneering offshore wind farm.
