BEIS Nods to Streamlined Triton Knoll

UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has approved the changes proposed by Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Limited for the Triton Knoll wind project offshore Lincolnshire.

The Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm (Amendment) Order 2018 allows for the project’s capacity to be reduced from up to 1,200MW to up to 900MW. The order also allows for the number of wind turbines to be lowered from up to 288 to up to 90.

The number of collector stations is now reduced from up to four to up to two, and the provisions to allow for meteorological stations or any high voltage direct current substations is now removed.

Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Limited, a special purpose company set up by innogy, is developing the Triton Knoll wind farm some 33km off the coast of Lincolnshire and 46km off the coast of Norfolk.

In September 2017, BEIS awarded Triton Knoll a Contract for Difference (CfD) for a generating capacity of 860MW.

innogy, the sole owner of the project, plans to reach a final investment decision this year, with the offshore construction starting in 2019. The wind farm will comprise 90 MHI Vestas V164-9.5MW turbines scheduled for commissioning in 2021.
