6th October 2020 in Project news

Dogger Bank Wind Farm Project Director, Steve Wilson (below), said:

“Today’s speech from the Prime Minister highlights the important role that offshore wind projects like Dogger Bank Wind Farm will play in providing clean power to homes up and down the country, as well as creating thousands of new jobs. It is also really positive news that there will be more investment in port infrastructure and manufacturing for offshore wind which subject to timing, could help support Dogger Bank, as well as the longer-term growth of the UK supply chain.”

“We’re already bringing a wealth of opportunities to the North East region, with 320 new green energy jobs announced recently in our supply chain. These include 200 jobs at the Port of Tyne, which will serve as our operations and maintenance base, as well as 120 jobs at Able Seaton, which will be the turbine marshalling facility during the construction phase.”
