The 1.4 gigawatt (GW) Sofia Offshore Wind Farm, sited on the shallow central area of the North Sea known as Dogger Bank, is the largest offshore wind project in RWE's current portfolio. The project is located 195 km off the UK’s North East coast on a site of 593 square kilometres. It has an agreed connection point at an existing National Grid substation in Lackenby, Teesside. Sofia Offshore Wind Farm is one of the four Dogger Bank projects that were awarded consent in 2015. Formerly known as Dogger Bank Teesside B, the entire project was taken over by innogy (now RWE) in August 2017 and subsequently renamed Sofia Offshore Wind Farm.
The project is now under construction, and is being carried out in close collaboration with suppliers, stakeholders, statutory bodies and the authorities.
