STS Belgium Cabling Triton Knoll Transition Pieces
- Wind Farm Update
STS Belgium is carrying out the cabling of the transition pieces for the Triton Knoll offshore wind project.
STS is conducting the work at Smulders’ yard in Hoboken and at the Sif Maasvlakte terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
To remind, Seaway 7’s installation vessel Seaway Strashnov arrived at the Triton Knoll offshore wind project site a few days ago with the first turbine foundations.
The 857MW Triton Knoll project will comprise 90 MHI Vestas 9.5MW turbines mounted on monopile foundations some 32km off the Lincolnshire coast in the UK.
The Sif-Smulders joint venture secured a contract in September 2017 to manufacture the monopiles and transition pieces, as well as two foundations for offshore substations, while Atkins provided the design.
