Triton Knoll status update - Covid-19
As a responsible employer, our top priority is to ensure that all of our staff, contractors and members of the public can stay safe and well throughout this unprecedented time.
Along with other UK construction projects, we have been requested to continue building the critical energy infrastructure that our society needs to function while carefully following government guidance.
Some activities on this nationally significant electricity infrastructure project are critical and cannot be undertaken remotely, for example, the safe commissioning of our onshore assets in line with national grid timelines, and the safe operation of the offshore construction site. In line with UK government guidance we are continuing these works using revised working procedures, and have implemented a number of control measures which will ensure our commitment to protecting our staff and the public’s safety and welfare.
Triton Knoll is an important potential source of home grown renewable energy in the UK and which is now in construction, installing the onshore electrical system in Lincolnshire.
Installation of the offshore array and infrastructure began in January 2020, and will be located 20 miles off the coast of Lincolnshire and 28 miles from the coast of north Norfolk.
The project is owned by RWE (59%) and partners J-Power (25%) and to Kansai Electric Power (16%).
Triton Knoll began onshore construction on 10 September, 2018 having achieved Financial Close at the end of August 2018, a Contract for Difference from the UK Government in September 2017, consent for the the onshore electrical system in September 2016 and for the offshore array in July 2013.
