SAN DONATO MILANESE, Italy – Eni has acquired a 20% stake from Equinor and SSE Renewables in the Dogger Bank (A and B) project, 80 mi (129 km) offshore the English east coast.
The project involves 190 turbines, each with a capacity of 13 MW.
At full capacity, Dogger Bank (3.6 GW) will generate around 5% of the UK’s renewable electricity demand, Eni added.
Construction of the Dogger Bank (A and B) is taking place in two stages, due to be completed by 2023 and 2024. The estimated cost is £6 billion ($8.07 billion).
This marks Eni’s entry to the northern European offshore wind market, adding 480 MW of renewable energy to its 2025 target of 5 GW of installed capacity from renewable sources.
