Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm will be able to provide power to more than 800.000 UK households on a yearly basis. The offshore wind farm is expected to be fully operational by January 2022 and here the 90 Vestas wind turbines will be able to produce green power.
Services provided by ISC
Triton Knoll consists of two offshore substation platforms (OSP) with array cables going from the wind turbines to the substations, hereby allowing the power to be transformed before going to shore. The two substations combined will be able to generate 857 KW of wind power.
ISC has provided the detailed design of the two substations, including both the topside and the substructure of the substations. The weight of the topside is 1100 tonnes, whereas the substructure is located at a water depth of 27 meters.
General description of the project
The offshore wind farm is located 32 kilometers from the Lincolnshire coast. The project has been carried out for Innogy Renewables UK and Siemens. The platforms have been fabricated by Smulders.
