GE Renewable Energy

GE  Offshore  Wind,  a  GE  Renewable  Energy  business, has more than 600 employees in the world. Today, we have wind turbines operating on three continents and we have installed the world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine in operations, the Haliade-X 12 MW, that has just received the provisional type certificate. It is a multi-million-dollar investment that is contributing to reduce the cost of offshore wind energy by making offshore wind a more competitive source of renewable energy.

We signed a preferred bidder agreement with Dogger Bank for the supply of GE’s Haliade-X offshore wind turbine for three Dogger Bank offshore windfarms (Dogger Bank A,B, & C), resulting in a total installed capacity of 3.6GW. Each project will have an installed capacity of 1.2GW which, and together, will deliver approximately 5% of the UK’s estimated power demand. This will be the world’s largest offshore windfarm, powered by the world’s most powerful turbine.

GE Renewable Energy has also partnered with ORE Catapult to implement the nacelle and blade testing program and develop the “Stay Ashore!” program, that aims to reduce the time service technicians spend at sea, increase safety and contribute to energy cost reduction by focusing on developing technology in robotics, digital and remote operations.

Mainstream Renewable Power

Mainstream is the most successful independent developer of offshore wind at scale globally.  It has consented the world's largest offshore wind farm in operation, the 1.2 GW Hornsea One project in the UK and developed the 1.4 GW Hornsea Two project.  It has also consented the 450 MW Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm in Scotland. Mainstream is responsible for 22% of the UK's offshore wind capacity either in operation or under construction.   

Mainstream has continued to build its offshore wind development capabilities. In Vietnam, Mainstream is currently developing one of Asia’s largest offshore wind farms with 800 MW gross capacity in a joint venture with local developer, Phu Cuong Group. 

In the US, Mainstream has received full qualification to apply for a lease in both the New York Bight, and California.  Both lease auctions are expected in 2021.

Mainstream's Offshore Centre of Excellence is in the UK.  Our offshore team collectively hold around 215 years of experience.

SSE Renewables

SSE Renewables is the leading developer, operator and owner of offshore wind energy across the UK and Ireland, with almost 3GW of consented or in construction projects in UK and Irish waters out of a total development pipeline of over 6GW.

SSE Renewables successfully secured 15-year contracts for 2.2GW of new offshore wind energy in the UK Government’s most recent auction for low carbon power in 2019. Our multi-billion-pound investments in new offshore wind energy are helping to drive a cleaner, more resilient economy by pursuing a green recovery from coronavirus. 

We’re building some of the biggest offshore wind developments right now, including the 3.6GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the North Sea with our joint venture partners Equinor which will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm when complete in 2025/26. We’re also building the 1,075MW Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm, a joint venture with our development partners Total, which will become Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm when complete in 2022/23.

In Ireland where an offshore wind energy market is emerging we’re developing the 520MW Phase 2 of Arklow Bank Wind Park in the south Irish Sea, and targeting delivery by 2025 to meet Ireland’s target of 1GW of offshore wind energy by the middle of the decade.

We’re also exploring the blue seas around our islands to identify new sites with the potential to develop new offshore wind farms utilising fixed and floating technology.

Our operational offshore wind portfolio consists of 579MW across three offshore sites around Great Britain, two of which we operate on behalf of joint venture partners.

Part of the FTSE-listed SSE plc, we own and operate the largest portfolio of installed renewable energy across the UK and Ireland, with around 4GW of offshore wind, onshore wind and hydro plant generating low carbon energy for customers across both islands. Our strategy is to drive the transition to a net-zero carbon future through the world class development, construction and operation of renewable energy assets.
