Danske Commodities signs 15-year power purchase deal for 3.6 GW British wind farm

Danske Commodities, oil and gas major Equinor’s power trading arm, has signed a 15 year power purchase agreement for Britain’s Dogger Bank offshore wind farm.

Dogger Bank, located 130 km off the coast of Yorkshire in northern England, is under construction and set to become the world’s largest offshore wind farm with a capacity of 3.6 GW, enough to power 4.5 million UK households. It is owned by Equinor and Britain’s SSE Renewables, both holding a 50 per cent share. Under the agreement, Danske Commodities will be responsible for trading and balancing 480 MW of the wind farm’s capacity on the power market.
