Innogy confirms Triton Knoll milestone

6 September 2018

Innogy has announced financial close for its 860 MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm off the east coast of England.

The energy company has also confirmed a contract with MHI Vestas for 90 of its V164-9.5 MW turbines for the project, which is owned by Innogy, J-Power and Kansai Electric Power.

MHI Vestas said in a statement that the project represents the largest MW project in the company’s history, and confirmed that it had signed a comprehensive service and maintenance agreement with Innogy for five years.

MHI Vestas will establish a full-scale turbine pre-assembly operation at Able UK’s Seaton port in Teesside, from enabling works to loadout. In addition, the Triton Knoll partners have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ABP to use its Grimsby facility as the wind farm’s long term operations and maintenance (O&M) base.

MHI Vestas added that its ambition is to expand its industrial footprint in the UK. It will manage all logistics and pre-assembly activity for the project. Turbine tower sections, blades and nacelles will be stockpiled and pre-assembled at Seaton, before being loaded on to construction vessels for transport and installation at the wind farm, 32 km offshore.
