Triton Knoll construction team sets up headquarters

The Offshore Construction Services (OCS) team for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm has moved into new facilities at Grimsby’s Royal Dock, establishing headquarters for offshore construction.

The OCS base will manage the offshore technicians, crews and scores of specialist vessels including Service Operations Vessels and Crew Transfer Vessels which are to arrive on site from Q1 2020. Triton Knoll is continuing to recruit for vacancies on the project, which will also be based out of the new Grimsby facilities.

Triton Knoll is also progressing with the construction of the larger Operations & Maintenance base office and separate warehousing facilities, from where we will manage the long term operations of the project.

Located 32km off the coast of Lincolnshire in the east of England,
Triton Knoll is being owned by innogy (59%), J-Power (25%), and Kansai Electric Power (16%) with innogy managing the construction as well as the long-term operation and maintenance works, on behalf of its project partners.

The wind farm will feature 90
V164-9.5 MW turbines mounted on monopile foundations connected by over 100km of cabling. The wind farm will enter offshore construction in the first half of 2020 with first power anticipated in 2021. Once fully operational, it will be capable of generating enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of over 800,000 typical UK households
