The groups will invest one billion pounds (€1.25 billion, $1.71 billion) in the Dudgeon project.
The wind turbines will be located 32 kilometres (20 miles) offshore, north of the town of Cromer in Norfolk, and will have a total capacity of 402 megawatts.
"This is in line with our commercial and stepwise approach to renewable energy development," Statoil executive vice president Eldar Saetre said in a statement.
Dudgeon is expected to power up around 410,000 homes by 2017.
The wind turbines themselves will be built by German company Siemens.
