860 MW offshore wind farm to be built in Lincolnshire
UK: Siemens has appointed engineering outfit BAM Nutall to tackle the bulk of civil engineering work on the onshore substation for Innogy’s 860 MW Triton Knoll wind farm off Lincolnshire.
BAM Nuttal’s scope of work includes foundations for the transformer, shunt reactor and AIS equipment as well as constructing the internal road, fence and internal drainage works. Work at the substation site at Bicker Fen has already started and there are currently around 50 people working on the project, Siemens said.
A first phase of work, including the build of a main access road substation platform, has already been completed. Triton Knoll will feature 90 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW turbines and is due online in 2021.
