Dudgeon hits CfD milestone
LCCC said final phase passed all operational conditions precedent
Statoil’s 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm off the coast of Norfolk in the UK is fully operational and receiving all Contract for Difference payments.
The Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) said the final phase of the project had passed all operational conditions precedent required for the CfD.
“This means that the entire Dudgeon project is now operating and receiving difference payments on generated electricity,” LCCC said.
LCCC added that Dudgeon will receive payments from the “earliest date it is entitled to do so under the Phase 3 investment contract”.
LCCC chief executive Neil McDermott said “I am delighted that Dudgeon has passed its OCPs in line with the CfD requirements, increasing the operational capacity of our CfD portfolio to over 1.3GW.”
Dudgeon consists of 67 Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines.
