Statoil and Statkraft acquire 560 MW offshore wind farm

The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project has been acquired by Norwegian companies Statoil and Statkraft, following the buying up of shares in Dudgeoun Offshore Wind Limited in the UK.

Both companies will combine to help deliver the Dudgeoun Offshore Wind Farm off the Norfolk coast in England.

Dudgeon has recently received an offshore consent that allows for up to 560 MW of installed generation capacity.

"This inward investment by Statoil and Statkraft furthers our energy relationship with Norway, will create hundreds of jobs, and enhance UK energy security, said John Hayes, UK Minister of State for Energy.

Statoil and Statkraft, together with RWE and SSE, are also partners in the Forewind consortium. The aim of the consortium is to achieve consent for the Dogger Bank project 120 km off the UK east coast, potentially the world's largest offshore wind development.
