Statoil is preparing to spend over £13 billion on a offshore wind development off the North east coast which could create hundreds of new jobs.
“Our aim is to increase the amount of local content on this development and the opportunities for the North East supply chain are huge,” said Halfdan Brustad, vice president renewable energy at Statoil.
The offshore wind sector continues to drive change at a time when oil and gas is struggling. The Dogger development will involve four phases, Creyke Beck A & B and Teesside A & B – which will deliver a total new electricity capacity of 5GW to provide power to approximately 2.5 million homes.
