Another topside for Dogger Bank
Last year HTV BigLift Baffin transported the Dogger Bank A offshore substation topside. In May of this year, she took Dogger Bank B Topside from the port of Laem Chabang, Thailand to Haugesund, Norway this May.
The substation topside will be installed in the Dogger bank Wind Farm, an offshore wind farm located off the north east coast of England, between 130 km and 190 km at its nearest points. Dogger Bank is being developed in three phases, A, B and C, and will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm once completed. The Dogger Bank B substation topside measures 61*39*35 meters and weighs 7800 mt. With her deck of 125*42 metres, HTV BigLift Baffin could amply accommodate the structure. At the time of writing, the Dogger Bank A substation topside has already been installed, while Dogger Bank B is scheduled to be delivered to the site in Q2 of 2024. The Dogger Bank C offshore topside is expected to be delivered in the year thereafter. Client Aibel has already awarded BigLift the shipping of the third substation topside in 2024. We are very proud and happy to be a part of this project, contributing to a sustainable future.
