Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind is a 1.5GW project located approximately 33 miles (54km) off the Lincolnshire coast.
A joint venture between TotalEnergies, Corio Generation and Gulf Energy Developments, it will be one of the UK’s largest offshore wind farms upon completion. It is anticipated to generate renewable electricity equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of over 1.6 million households and will play a critical role in achieving the UK Government’s ambition to deliver 50 GW of offshore wind by 2030 and to achieve net zero by 2050.
Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind will displace the equivalent of nearly 2 million tonnes CO2 emissions per year of operations through the generation of renewable electricity. That is equivalent to removing over 650,000 petrol cars from the road for the duration of the Project.
“Our next generation offshore wind farm will help form the backbone of the UK’s net-zero energy system, engaging communities, delivering opportunities, and empowering transformational environmental change.”
Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind will be developed jointly by TotalEnergies, Corio Generation (part of the Green Investment Group) and Gulf Energy Development.
“Environmental stewardship and community engagement are central to Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind’s vision. Our aim is to have a long term positive environmental impact through responsible design optimisation of the project, honest and transparent engagement with local communities and stakeholders, and proactive mitigation solutions.”
