Triton Knoll’s Tier 1 contractor, Siemens, has appointed UK firm BAM Nuttall as its main contractor to complete  civils works on the onshore substation phase of the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm project, in Lincolnshire.

The company is the latest in a number of UK subcontractors appointed by Siemens, which is leading the work to design, supply and build the onshore substation and connection into the nearby National Grid substation for Triton Knoll.

They include several firms local to the Lincolnshire site. Companies completing minor civils work, piling and electrical work have been appointed from Lincoln, Boston and Newark. In addition, Lincolnshire firms are already on-site completing drainage works, while all the archaeology supervision and necessary works are also being completed by companies local to Lincoln. And with work at Bicker Fen, the site which will house the onshore substation ongoing, there are around 50 people on site and this is expected to increase to around 150 later this year.

Julian Garnsey, Project Director for Triton Knoll and innogy, said “I’m particularly pleased to see that the commitment of our Triton Knoll project, to support the UK offshore wind supply chain through investments within the UK, is fully supported by our primary contractor Siemens. I’m delighted to welcome BAM Nuttall to Triton Knoll and look forward to celebrating even more contractors to the project in future.”
