Triton Knoll, the giant 860MW offshore wind farm planned for the Lincolnshire coast, has reached financial close today, according to developers Innogy. A combination of equity and bank arrangements have come together to secure the financing for the £2bn project, while a turbine supply contract with MHI Vestas has also been agreed, Innogy said. Construction is set to start in September and finish in 2021. Once up and running Triton Knoll is expected to supply enough green electricity to power the equivalent of 800,000 UK households.

New wind turbines are set to be created at Able UK’s Hartlepool site in a move which could see 100 jobs created. Triton Knoll has placed orders with turbine manufacturer MHI Vestas to provide the offshore project with 90 of its machines. MHI Vestas will establish a full-scale turbine pre-assembly operation at Able UK’s Seaton Port. It is anticipated that, in total, the port activity could create around 100 new and predominately local jobs and unlock over £16million of investment in new infrastructure and equipment.
