Smulders Sends Off Last Triton Knoll Transition Piece
- Wind Farm Update
The last of the 90 transition pieces for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm has been transported from Smulders’ Hoboken yard to the collection port.
To remind, in September 2017, the Sif-Smulders joint venture secured a contract to manufacture the monopiles and transition pieces, as well as two foundations for offshore substations, for the 857 MW project.
The company stated it had managed to maintain the schedule despite the current challenging situation.
Triton Knoll will comprise 90 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW turbines located 32 kilometers off the Lincolnshire coast.
Construction is currently underway, with the first foundation installed in January. Commissioning is expected in 2021.
