Triton Knoll Lincolnshire offshore wind farm update

A PUBLIC information programme about the electrical system for the proposed Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm will be launched by the team behind the project this week.

A newsletter giving an update on RWE npower renewables’ plans for the electrical system which could connect the offshore wind farm to the national grid will be sent to land owners, councillors, MPs and other interested parties as well as being sent to local libraries.

The latest details on the proposal will also be available on new web pages at which will contain a frequently asked questions section developed following feedback from the public.

There will also be an electronic version of the newsletter available to view or download.

Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm would consist of up to 288 turbines 20 miles off the Lincolnshire coast which could generate up to 1,200 MW of renewable energy.

Project Manager Jacob Hain said: “The electrical system part of the project is still in its infancy but we are very keen to share any developments with those who have already shown an interest in our proposals.

“The newsletter and website give background on the project, including details of what we have been doing on the electrical system since we received a connection offer from National Grid in January.

“We are aware there is a genuine appetite for information and we are keen to keep people updated even though the project is still in its infancy. We hope these updates are useful and if anyone has any questions or comments we have a ‘contact us’ section in the newsletter and on our website where people can give us their feedback.”
