The world’s biggest offshore wind farm is set to get the go-ahead from SSE as part of the energy group’s plans to treble its renewable electricity output in the next decade.
The company said yesterday that it expected to reach a financial close in a matter of days on the first two stages of the Dogger Bank wind farm, 60 miles off the northeast coast of England.
SSE owns 50 per cent of the project, with the remainder owned by Equinor, of Norway, although both companies are looking to sell 10 per cent stakes. Alistair Phillips-Davies, SSE’s chief executive, said that a deal to reduce the stakes was “progressing reasonably well” and was likely to take place within the next few weeks.
