Triton Knoll Installs Offshore Substation Platforms

The installation of Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm has reached another milestone in the delivery of critical new UK energy infrastructure, with the safe installation of the first of two offshore substation platforms (OSPs).

The OSPs are designed by Siemens Energy Limited and weigh 1400 tonnes each. They are part of a state-of-the-art electrical system that will connect both the onshore and offshore assets into the national grid distribution network. The two OSPs, East and West, will each receive electricity generated by the wind farm’s 90 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines, before converting it for transfer to the landfall connection via two export cables due to be installed this summer.

Julian Garnsey, project director for Triton Knoll and innogy, said: “In the current climate, the delivery of this milestone is a notable achievement. Our thanks go to everyone who contributed to the safe installation of this platform, which is testament to the commitment of the teams involved, all of whom are operating under tight control measures in line with the current UK Government guidance. At Triton Knoll we remain committed to delivering electricity infrastructure equal to the typical needs of over 2 million UK residents(1) and within the timescales expected by the UK’s energy supply.”

Triton Knoll is a 857 MW offshore wind farm, consisting of 90 turbines, located 32 km off the Lincolnshire coast. It is the largest offshore wind farm currently in construction by innogy.
