First Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Power Now Online (Ind. Report)
RWE, Triton Knoll
Date: 2021-03-05
RWE is reporting the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm has generated its first renewable electricity following the January installation of the first of the project's 90 Vestsa wind turbines and the energization of the project's transmission system -- offshore substation platforms, offshore export cable, onshore cables and onshore substation.

When fully operational the 857 MW facility will generate sufficient power for 800,000 UK homes and the most powerful facility in the RWE global fleet.

The 145 square kilometer project, which is located over 32 kilometers off the Lincolnshire coast, is jointly owned by RWE, J-Power and Kansai Electric Power, with RWE managing the construction, long-term operation and maintenance works.

Siemens.Triton Knoll
Date: 2018-09-12
Siemens Energy Management reports it will soon begin onshore substation and offshore transformer module design, supply and construction work on the UK's Triton Knoll offshore wind farm. The new wind farm will be capable of providing sufficient clean and sustainable power for the equivalent of at least 800,000 British homes.

Siemens was awarded a contract from its German customer Innogy SE, to design, supply and build the grid connection for the 860 MW wind farm 32 km off the Lincolnshire coast.

Siemens will lead on the construction of a new four-hectare onshore substation at Bicker Fen, as well as offshore infrastructure, including two Offshore Transformer Modules (OTM). Work is already underway on a new bell mouth entry point and 3.8 km access road to the new substation construction site. The onshore substation construction will start early 2019.

Date: 2018-08-15
Nikkei Asian Review is reporting Tokyo-based Electric Power Development -- aka J-Power -- and Osaka regional utility Kansai Electric Power will purchase a total 41 pct stake of Frankfurt, Germany-based wind farm developer RWE Innogy's 860-MW Triton Knoll offshore wind project in the U.K. The estimated $900 million deal will give J-Power a 25 pct stake and Kansai Electric a roughly 16 pct share.

Innogy plans to start up the 860-mw Triton Knoll offshore wind project -- one of the biggest of its kind in the world -- in the North Sea in 2021. The project will utilize up to 90 9.5MW turbines and sell its output to local utilities under a 15-year fixed-rate contract. Triton Knoll is due to go live in 2021 and is expected to generate sufficient electric power for 800,000 UK households.
