The development is set to be the world's largest offshore wind project and many want a slice of the action. Despite the fact that no turbines have yet been installed on the British offshore wind project Dogger Bank, the ownership of the major development has changed hands many times. And now it is happening again.

Norway's Statoil is involved in a construction deal with utilities Innogy and SSE for the ownership stake in Dogger Bank. Dogger Bank counts four offshore wind projects Creyke Beck A and B and Teesside A and B. After the swap deal today, Statoil and SSE wil own 50 percent of Crekye A and B and Teesside A, while Innogy will own 100 percent of Teesside B.
