Under the agreement, Danske Commodities will be responsible for the trading and balancing of 480 MW of the project’s 3.6 GW capacity.

“The Dogger Bank PPA is a great addition to our long-term portfolio and it shows our commitment to British renewables. Danske Commodities has traded power in the UK for more than ten years and we see PPAs as a crucial part of ensuring the continued development of renewables,” said Danske Commodities’ VP, Head of European Power Trading Tor Mosegaard.

The Dogger Bank Wind Farm, which is being delivered 130 km off the coast of Yorkshire in three 1.2 GW phases, will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm when completed.

The project, owned by Equinor and SSE Renewables, will comprise GE Haliade-X 12 MW turbines. Construction began in January, with commercial operation expected in 2023.
