Mammoet has been selected by wind turbine manufacturer GE Renewable Energy to supply onshore heavy lifting and transport services for the Dogger Bank wind farm located 130 km off the north-east coast of England in the North Sea.
Operating at Able Seaton Port, Mammoet’s team will utilise SPMTs and cranes for the loading and assembly of 277 sets of turbine blades, nacelles, and towers at the marshalling harbour.
Mammoet UK is strategically positioned 19 km from Able Seaton in Teesside and has storage and workshop spaces as well as testing areas to support the project.
GE will start preparing the marshalling harbour and receiving components at the end of 2022.
“The project is a large step towards a net-zero future, delivering a boost for the local economy and wider 2030 and 2050 emissions targets,” said group commercial officer at Mammoet, Darren Adams.
Slated for completion in 2026, the Dogger Bank wind farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Vårgrønn.
