CNBC's Anmar Frangoul is reporting that The Dogger Bank Wind Farm has started producing electricity. 

The Dogger Bank Wind Farm, located off the coast of northeast England in the North Sea, has started producing electricity, marking a significant milestone for what is described as the world's largest offshore wind farm under construction. The project, developed in phases A, B, and C, will have a total capacity of 3.6 gigawatts once fully operational.

The electricity generated by the first turbine is being transmitted to the UK's national grid, utilizing high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology, a first for a UK wind farm. The project, equipped with GE Vernova's Haliade-X turbines, is a joint venture partnership involving SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Vårgrønn. UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak praised offshore wind as crucial for generating renewable energy in British seas.

Meanwhile, in the US, the offshore wind sector is still developing, with plans to increase capacity in the coming years, including projects like Vineyard Wind 1.
