Aberdeen's Proserv Controls secures contract at world’s largest offshore wind farm

Aberdeen-based controls technology specialist Proserv Controls has won a contract for work on the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The deal with DEME Offshore covers the provision of the inter-array cable monitoring system for the first two phases, A and B, of the giant wind farm development.

Due to its size and scale, Dogger Bank is being built in three consecutive 1.2 gigawatt (GW) phases. When completed, the wind farm, located off the north east coast of England, will have the capacity to power some six million UK homes.
