Welcome to DBS Offshore Wind

DBS Offshore Wind Farms

The DBS (Dogger Bank South) Offshore Wind Farms are being developed by RWE and Masdar for a shallow offshore area of the North Sea known as Dogger Bank, located over 100km off the northeast coast of England.

DBS comprises two separate sites, DBS East and DBS West. Based on an estimated combined capacity of 3GW, the projects could be capable of generating enough electricity to meet the average annual domestic electricity needs of around 3 million typical UK homes*.

We have been developing the projects since 2021 and submitted a Development Consent Order application with an Environmental Statement on 12 June 2024. The Planning Inspectorate accepted our application into the next stage of the consenting process in July 2024. This next phase, pre-examination, provides an opportunity for people to register as an interested party prior to the examination.

You can make a comment directly to the Planning Inspectorate by registering as an interested party and submitting a Relevant Representation between 26 July and 11:59pm on 06 September 2024.

You can view all application documents and register to be kept up to date throughout the examination process on the Planning Inspectorate website.
