With reference to the initial stock announcement on July 19, 2018 by Subsea 7 S.A. Seaway Heavy Lifting, part of Subsea 7 Renewables & Heavy Lifting Business Unit, recently confirmed the award of the Triton Knoll contract.
The sizeable contract scope includes the transport and installation of 90 WTG foundations and two offshore substations and was awarded by Triton Knoll Offshore Windfarm Limited.
Triton Knoll is a consented offshore wind farm being developed by Innogy Renewables UK Ltd. The project is owned by Innogy SE (59 percent) and partners J-Power (25 percent) and Kansai Electric Power (16 percent). The Triton Knoll wind farm is in the Greater Wash area, approximately 33 kilometers off the coast of Lincolnshire and 46 kilometers from the North Norfolk coastline. Once fully operational, Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm will be capable of supplying the equivalent of 800,000 U.K. households with renewable electricity.
Offshore installation activities will be executed in 2020 using Seaway Heavy Lifting’s crane vessel Stanislav Yudin. This vessel provides significant lift and installation capabilities ideally suited for the challenges of installing wind farm foundations.
Steph McNeill, SVP Subsea 7 Renewables & Heavy Lifting, said, “Seaway Heavy Lifting has a long track record of successful and safe balance of plant installation for renewable energy projects in the North Sea. We look forward to supporting Innogy in completing the development of the Triton Knoll Windfarm offshore.”
