Introducing Dogger Bank D Windfarm

Where Energy Meets Opportunity

Offshore Windfarm

Dogger Bank D is a proposed new fourth phase of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm, the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

Located in the North Sea around 210km off the northeast coast at its closest point to shore, Dogger Bank D aims to generate up to around 2GW of renewable electricity from an offshore wind farm in support of the decarbonisation of the UK energy system.

The Project

Dogger Bank D welcomed confirmation of a grid connection location in February 2024. The wind farm will connect into Birkhill Wood, a proposed new 400kV substation located in the East Riding of Yorkshire which will be built as part of National Grid’s Great Grid Upgrade.

You can read more about the grid connection location confirmation here.

With the confirmation of an onshore grid connection location in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the option to direct the wind energy produced by Dogger Bank D towards hydrogen production, as publicly consulted on in Autumn 2023, has been retired from the project.

Plans to produce green hydrogen at a dedicated onshore facility had been explored in parallel with the electrical transmission opportunity by Dogger Bank D since the project's announcement in February 2023.

Dogger Bank D will undertake a site selection process to identify potential cable corridors and where other onshore infrastructure may be sited for the grid connection.

Our first stage of public consultation closed on 7 November 2023 and we would like to thank everyone who took part by attending one of our events, the webinar and sending feedback on the early proposals.
