Overview of jobs
The operation of Triton Knoll is delivering important investment into the Humber 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 to compete for new opportunities in the region in future.
The project is supporting direct and indirect jobs throughout the operational lifespan of the wind farm, which is typically between 20 - 25 years.
Jobs during construction
The construction of the wind farm itself accounted for the highest recruitment drive, some jobs were directly with the project, but the vast majority were created through the wind farm’s main contractors. The majority of jobs were based in the Greater Lincolnshire area for onshore civil engineering and construction of the land based electrical system. The Grimsby area is central for O&M port preparations and the base for offshore construction. Many of the project management and support roles were run out of the RWE Renewables headquarters in Swindon.
At the height of onshore construction, around 500 full time equivalent jobs resulted from the installation of the land based electrical system alone.
Jobs during operation
The operation of a project the size of Triton Knoll is a significant undertaking. It requires 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 is generating both direct and indirect jobs, based out of our new state-of-the-art operations and maintenance facility, The Grimsby Hub at Royal Docks.
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 and office facilities to catering are involved in supporting the operations phase of Triton Knoll.
