The work will include transporting and installing the 3,500-tonne jacket foundation, four main piles, and the 9,500-tonne offshore substation topside. This work will be part of the third phase of the Dogger Bank wind farm project off the northeast coast of the UK. Due to its size and scale, Dogger Bank is being built in three consecutive 1.2 GW phases: Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B, and Dogger Bank C.

When operational in 2026, Dogger Bank will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
