Triton Knoll Team Picks Sif-Smulders JV to Build Foundations

The Sif-Smulders joint venture has been selected to manufacture 90 monopiles and transition pieces, as well as two foundations for offshore substations, for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm in the UK. 

Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Ltd, a joint venture between innogy and Statkraft, has signed Preferred Supplier and Early Works Agreements with Sif and Smulders for the design and fabrication of the foundations.

For the design portion of the work Sif and Smulders have selected Atkins, a UK-based engineering company.

The engineering and design for the project will start by the end of September 2017 based on an Early Works Agreement. Fabrication will start in the first quarter of 2019 following the financial close of the project, which is expected to be reached by mid-2018.

The 860MW offshore wind farm, located 32km off the coast of Lincolnshire and 50km off the coast of north Norfolk, will comprise 90 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines, 2 offshore substations, 1 onshore substation, associated inter-array cables, and export cables that are routed both offshore and onshore.
