Tata Steel to help build world's largest offshore wind farm in the UK

Tata Steel, one of India's leading steel manufacturing companies, is going to play a major role in helping build the world’s largest offshore wind farm called ‘Dogger Bank Wind Farm’ which will be capable of delivering clean energy for 6 million homes in the UK, and would be operational by 2026.

The wind farm is being established in three phases of 1.2 GW, namely Dogger Bank A, B, and C.

Reportedly, the Dogger Bank A and B are a joint venture which took place between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%) and Eni (20%).

In November 2021, JV partners in Dogger Bank C, SSE Renewables and Equinor, revealed that Eni would take around 20% of the stake in the last phase, with SSE Renewables and Equinor continuing 40% stakes each, in a deal which will be expected to complete in 1Q22 subject to federal approvals.

In the first two construction phases, massive GE Renewable Energy turbines which are each rated at 13 MW – enough to power a home for two days with a single rotation – will sit on foundation of the structure, highlighting Tata Steel products used in safety-critical transitions pieces. These steel structures connect the tower above the sea surface and the foundations below the water.

In November 2020, Smulders and Sif, the fabrication companies, were granted contracts to offer the wind turbine foundations for the first two phases of Dogger Bank; with Dogger Bank C awarded a project year later.

The steel manufactured in the Tata Steel's Port Talbot facility and managed into hollow sections at the company's Corby and Hartlepool locations is being developed by one of the contracts companies helping to build the first two phases of the wind farm.

Chairman of the Board of Tata Steel UK, Sandip Biswas said that the firm is proud to support UK jobs and manufacturing via this project.
