RWE, Masdar Detail DBS Offshore Wind Farms Development

by Madaline Dunn

Masdar and RWE have announced that the Development Consent Order (DCO) application for the DBS (Dogger Bank South) Offshore Wind Farms has been accepted into the UK Planning Inspectorate examination phase.

This moves the projects into the pre-examination phase, subject to a public examination later in 2024. The following steps are securing Contracts for Difference (CfD), followed by financing and construction.

The DBS East and DBS West offshore wind farms are located in shallow waters on the Dogger Bank, over 100km off the northeast coast of England. The projects will have up to 200 turbines with a combined estimated capacity of three gigawatts.

RWE will be leading development, construction and operation on behalf of the project partners RWE (51 per cent share) and Masdar (49 per cent share).

RWE entered Agreements for Lease for the two DBS projects with The Crown Estate in January 2023.

Meanwhile, in December 2023, Masdar announced it had acquired a 49 per cent stake in the DBS offshore wind projects.

The shareholding agreement between the companies was finalised in February 2024.
