SeaPlanner Joins Triton Knoll Roster
SeaPlanner Ltd has won a contract to provide its SeaPlanner marine management system and SeaHub communications solutions to support the construction of the 857MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm.
The SeaPlanner will be deployed for use by the construction project team to coordinate all personnel and marine logistics for the 145 kilometre-square site located some 33 kilometres off the UK Lincolnshire coast.
The SeaHub solutions will provide radio and AIS capabilities specifically supporting Marine Coordination throughout offshore construction. The SeaHub units being provided will be remotely monitored via the SeaPlanner software.
Julian Garnsey, project director for Triton Knoll and innogy, said: “We’re very pleased to be bringing another UK based company onboard to support Triton Knoll, and look forward to working closely with SeaPlanner to coordinate the wind farm construction safely and efficiently from our planned base in Grimsby.”
Offshore construction for Triton Knoll will begin in early 2020, coordinated from a new base being developed in Grimsby.
Triton Knoll is being developed by innogy Renewables UK Ltd in partnership with J-Power and Kansai Electric Power. The wind farm will comprise 90 MHI Vestas 9.5MW turbines. The first power is expected in 2021 and the wind farm is scheduled to be fully commissioned in 2022.
