Sustainable Dogger Bank Buildings

Plans for the Dogger Bank Wind Farm Operations and Maintenance (O&M) base, that will serve the world’s biggest offshore wind farm, have been announced.

Working with Ryder Architecture, Equinor has designed the O&M Base to be built using environmentally friendly materials and incorporates EV chargers, solar panels and efficient heating systems have been included to ensure the facility has a low carbon impact.

As well as offices for those based onshore and a warehouse to store spare parts for the wind farm, the design includes development of a new quay suitable for the state-of-the-art Service Operations Vessels (SOVs) that provide accommodation, and transport for technicians to and from the wind farm. The vessels will come to the port approximately twice a month for resupply and crew change.

Francesca Harrison, project architect at Ryder, said, “The design proposals reflect Dogger Bank’s drive for a more sustainable future. They have been designed to achieve net-zero carbon and provide one of the best workspaces in the north east helping Dogger Bank to attract the best talent.”

The plans for the O&M facility have been submitted to South Tyneside Council for a planning application. The construction contractor will be appointed in the coming months.
