The construction and operation of Triton Knoll is delivering important investment into the region. Triton Knoll, our contractors and partners are working with local businesses and investing in skills and learning, to help support a local, skilled workforce that is well placed to work with the project now, and that is well placed to compete for new opportunities in the region in future.
The project is supporting direct and indirect jobs both during the operational lifespan of the wind farm, which is typically between 20 - 25 years.
About jobs, skills and learning
- jobs during construction
The construction of the wind farm itself accounts for the vast majority of job opportunities, some directly with the project, but the vast majority through the wind farm’s main contractors. Areas like around Greater Lincolnshire, Boston, the Humber, the east of England, East Midlands and Yorkshire are likely to benefit from these opportunities.
At its height, around 500 full time equivalent jobs are likely to have resulted from the installation of the electrical system construction works alone, with a number of these Lincolnshire based.
- jobs during operation
The operation of a project the size of Triton Knoll will be a significant undertaking. It will require crews of highly skilled operations and maintenance staff to keep the wind farm running at an optimum level and to maximise the energy being captured from the wind. The operational phase will generate both direct and indirect jobs, based out of our O&M base, being built at Grimsby's Royal Dock. By far, the vast majority of these would be locally sourced, supported by with extensive training.
- indirect support jobs
Triton Knoll represents a significant investment within both the East Coast and UK economies. This, in turn, has positive spin-offs for businesses not necessarily directly involved in the construction. Companies involved in everything from hotels to transport, office facilities to catering, are involved in supporting the delivery of the project throughout its various phases of construction and operation.
