SSE Renewables is a world-leading developer, operator and owner of offshore wind energy. We are building more offshore wind energy than any other company in the world right now.
We are currently constructing the world’s largest offshore wind energy project, the 3.6GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm in the North Sea, which is a joint venture with Equinor and Eni, as well as Scotland’s largest and the world's deepest fixed bottom offshore site, the 1.1GW Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm in the Firth of Forth, a joint venture with TotalEnergies.
FOR £9 BILLION SPEND
FOR 3,500 JOBS
FOR THE UK SUPPLY CHAIN
Through our construction pipeline we’re leading the delivery of £9bn in new offshore wind farms in UK waters. Together these crucial offshore wind energy projects are having a real impact in helping the UK ‘Build Back Greener’ and between them these projects will support and create more than 3,500 supply chain and operations jobs in the UK.
When complete, Dogger Bank and Seagreen will help power millions of UK homes and businesses and drive the transition to Net Zero carbon emissions. These assets will join our existing operational offshore wind portfolio which consists of 487MW across two offshore joint venture sites, Beatrice and Greater Gabbard, both of which we operate on behalf of our asset partners.
FOR BUILDING THE WORLD'S
LARGEST OFFSHORE WIND FARM
Through our construction of Dogger Bank Wind Farm, which will utilise the most powerful offshore wind turbine in operation today, GE’s up to 14MW Haliade-X, we’re setting the global standard for the delivery of new offshore wind energy projects.

We’re leading the development of more offshore wind than any other company in the world. We have the largest offshore wind development pipeline across the UK and Ireland at over 7GW, and we're also extending our portfolio into other international geographies.
FOR SCOTLAND'S GLOBAL
In Scotland, we're pursuing the country's newest global-scale offshore opportunity, Berwick Bank. At up to 4.1GW, the Berwick Bank super-project development off the east coast of Scotland is one of the largest offshore developments in the world. Berwick Bank Wind Farm is at an advanced stage of development, with a planning application expected to go to the Scottish Government in Spring 2022. If successful it would increase Scotland’s overall renewable energy capacity by nearly 30%, accelerating the country’s net zero ambitions. The project will also be capable of generating enough renewable energy to power over five million homes – equivalent to all of Scotland’s households twice over.

FOR SCOTWIND'S 10GW AMBITION
LOCAL EXPERIENCE WITH GLOBAL EXPERTISE
We’re part of a unique consortium with the local experience and global expertise for ScotWind’s 10GW ambition. Together with our partners Marubeni Corporation and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, we have the credibility, capability and commitment to deliver for Scotland, creating jobs, supporting the energy transition and backing new supply chain facilities.

FOR IRELAND'S ENERGY SECURITY
WE'RE 100% READY
We plan to bring our world-leading excellence in offshore wind energy to Irish waters with plans to deliver 2GW of offshore wind energy in the Irish Sea and Celtic Sea by 2030, including the 520MW Arklow Bank Wind Park off the coast of Co. Wicklow, helping create local jobs. To find out more about how we’re 100% ready to deliver the offshore wind needed to help secure Ireland’s energy future, reduce carbon emissions and create local jobs, click here.
And off England we’re extending Greater Gabbard with our plans for North Falls.
FOR BUILDING A GREENER FUTURE
Delivering our current pipeline would result in average additions of over 500MW of new renewable capacity every year to 2030, and, with upcoming seabed auctions and clear opportunities to expand internationally, SSE Renewables has clear aspirations to reach a run rate of at least 1GW of new assets a year during the second half of this decade.
In the last 12 months SSE has begun to export SSE Renewables’ capabilities in offshore wind development, construction and operation to international markets where it sees growth opportunities. SSE Renewables is now actively looking to develop offshore wind projects in Denmark, Poland, Spain and Portugal where growth opportunities have been identified.
These exciting plans across the UK, Ireland and internationally will propel SSE Renewables further into a new era of growth so we power the drive to net zero.
