Triton Knoll substation may not now be built in East Lindsey area

THE CONTROVERSIAL proposal to build an electrical substation in East Lindsey connecting to the giant Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm off Mablethorpe and Skegness may not happen.

Campaigners against the scheme said it could result in electricity pylons stretching across the area, ruining life for villagers.

RWE npower renewables is developing the wind farm and has been consulting with local people about where to build the substation.

Now the company says the National Grid has told them they have identified possible new and alternative options for the location outside East Lindsey.

RWE npower renewables says because of this new information it has decided to ‘put work on the substation application and consultation on hold’ until the National Grid confirms whether the location is within East Lindsey or moves elsewhere.
