Tyne and Wear Pension Fund have invested in a fleet of ships designed to support the Dogger Bank Wind Farm. The Dogger Bank project will be located on an isolated sandbank within the central to southern North Sea, spanning the UK, Germany, Danish and Dutch waters. Once completed, the wind farm will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world and capable of generating enough renewable power to provide around 5% of the Uk’s electricity supply. It is believed, the ‘Dogger Bank’ name was coined from ‘Dogger Land’, which for a period of time, was a land connected to the UK and mainland Europe. As sea levels rose, after the last Ice Age, the area became an island before being completely submerged by water around 8000 years ago.
As we fast forward to the 21st century it has became increasingly relevant to adhere to climate change and support ethical choices within our region.
