On Monday 17 January the first 6 platforms for the Dogger Bank A transition pieces were loaded out at our yard in Balen. The platforms were shipped to our Hoboken yard where they will be assembled onto the transition pieces.
The first completed transition pieces are expected to leave the assembly yard in Hoboken in March.
In November 2020, the consortium Sif-Smulders was awarded the contract for the manufacture of all 190 monopiles and transition pieces for the Dogger Bank A & B Offshore Wind Farm. Just a few months ago, the consortium was also awarded the contract for the third phase of the wind farm, Dogger Bank C.
Dogger Bank A and B is a joint venture between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%) and Eni (20%). In November 2021 SSE Renewables and Equinor, 50:50 joint venture partners in Dogger Bank C, announced Eni will take a 20% stake in the final phase, with SSE Renewables and Equinor maintaining 40% stakes each, in a deal that is expected to complete in Q1 2022.
