In construction | Offshore Wind Farm

Triton Knoll in Great Britain

A large part of the operating wind portfolio in the United Kingdom is located in England, where RWE is currently building Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm (857 MW, RWE share: 59%), on behalf of its partners JPower and Kansai Electric Power.

Construction of the onshore substation, 57km export cable and landfall began in September 2018 and is at an advanced stage.

Offshore works started in January 2020 and are well underway. Foundations for all 90 of the turbines are being installed, as are the two Offshore Substation Platforms and the 50km subsea export cable. Installation of the 90 turbines is expected to start in early 2021, with turbine commissioning and first power generated shortly after.

Once fully operational, Triton Knoll will be able to generate enough green electricity to meet the equivalent needs of over 800,000 average UK households.

Triton Knoll is part of the Greater Wash strategic area off the east coast of England, located 20 miles off the Lincolnshire coast and 28 miles off the Norfolk coast. This is one of three strategic areas off the UK coast approved for offshore wind development by The Crown Estate and the Government in 2003. Once built, the electrical infrastructure at sea and on land will connect the wind farm to the grid. Underwater export cables from the offshore wind farm will land north of Anderby Creek, and the electricity will be routed via a 57km underground cable network to the Bicker Fen substation, close to the town of Boston (UK).

Triton Knoll has a large website with plenty of facts, figures, background and official information on the project.
