Dogger Bank South sites (DBS East and DBS West)

In development | Offshore Wind Farm

Dogger Bank South sites (DBS East and DBS West)

RWE was awarded the status of ‘preferred bidder’ for the two adjacent sites which make up Dogger Bank South (DBS) in The Crown Estate’s Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4 tender process in February 2021. Following the conclusion of the Habitats Regulations Assessment process in July 2022, The Crown Estate announced its intention to enter into Agreements for Lease with RWE, giving seabed development rights for the sites.

The DBS offshore wind farm projects are located more than 100 km off the northeast coast of England at the shallow offshore area of the North Sea known as Dogger Bank. DBS is made up of two separate sites, DBS East and DBS West.

Each project could have an installed capacity of up to 1.5 GW meaning that together, they could generate enough clean renewable energy to power up to 3.4 million typical UK households per year.

The number of turbines for each site has not yet been determined, but the design allows for up to 300 wind turbines (a maximum of 150 for each project). The final number will be dependent on the size of turbines eventually installed. 

Although the projects are at a very early stage, offshore and onshore surveys are already underway as part of the development process, including metocean data collection and a series of geophysical and environmental surveys.

RWE launched an Introductory Consultation on 9th September 2022  to share the latest proposals for the projects. The consultation involves a number of face to face events that can be viewed in the Community Newsletter at the top of this page. Please click the link above to visit the dedicated Introductory Consultation website. The Introductory Consultation will close on 14th October 2022 at 5pm.

In the meantime, you can find out more information on the projects by viewing the Fact Sheet here.
