The Triton Knoll project will be 32 km off the Lincolnshire coast in England and is being developed by Innogy Renewables UK. It is owned by innogy (59 per cent), J-Power (25 per cent) and Kansai Electric Power (16 per cent).
It will be powered by 90 turbines from MHI Vestas, each rated at 9.5 MW.
Siemens Energy Management will lead a construction team to build a new four-hectare onshore substation. “This is an important project to deliver clean, green energy to UK homes and businesses,” said Carl Ennis, Managing Director at for Siemens Energy Management.
The onshore substation work will start early next year.
