GE Vernova’s Offshore wind business’ 13 MW Haliade-X offshore wind turbine, the first of 277 total turbines, installed at the 3.6 GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm 130 km off the UK coast, has started producing power.
The wind farm will be built in three phases, namely Dogger Bank A, B, and C, and will incorporate a combination of 13 and 14 MW Haliade-X turbines to power the equivalent of 6 million UK households or about 5% of the UK’s electricity demand.
“The Haliade-X was designed to provide clean, reliable renewable energy at scale to projects such as Dogger Bank,” said GE Vernova's Offshore Wind business CEO Jan Kjaersgaard. “It is exactly the kind of innovative technology GE Vernova will rely on to continue to electrify the world while simultaneously working to decarbonize it."
For about three years, a prototype of the Haliade-X has been operating on land in the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands and has received independent certification from DNV to operate at up to 14.7 MW as a result of a test conducted on it.
Additionally, the Haliade-X turbine will also be used as part of the 800 MW Vineyard Wind project, a utility-scale wind farm in the U.S., and the Ocean Wind I project in New Jersey.
