PROJECT SUMMARY

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 development portfolio.

The consented project is located 195 km from the nearest point on the UK’s North East coast on a site of 593 square kilometres. It will have a single offshore converter platform, with the electricity generated transported from there, via a high voltage direct current export cable, to landfall 220 kilometres away in Redcar, Teesside. It will require a new onshore converter station, and has an agreed grid connection point at the existing National Grid substation in Lackenby, Teesside, seven kilometres inland. The project is reviewing port options for its long-term operations & maintenance activity.
