NKT has finalised the manufacturing and delivery of both the export cable system and array cables for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm located in the North Sea east of Lincolnshire in the UK.

The project comprises the manufacture of 100 km of 220 kV HVAC offshore export cables and 144 km of 66 kV array cables as well as installation. NKT completed the Triton Knoll power cable project in a consortium with Boskalis Subsea Cables and Flexibles (previously VBMS).

"Offshore wind is a cornerstone in mitigating climate change and we are proud to continue our long-term collaboration with RWE and its partners J-Power and Kansai Electronic Power to drive the green transition of the UK. The successful collaboration has been essential to our supply of both export- and array cables for Triton Knoll during the challenging times of COVID-19. With the finalization of the project, we continue to set our mark on the ongoing development of offshore wind as a leading power cable provider,"
commented Alexander Kara, President & CEO in NKT.

Triton Knoll will have an installed capacity of 857 MW, capable of supplying green electricity equivalent to the annual demand of over 800,000 UK homes. It is located over 32 kilometres off the Lincolnshire coast. It is jointly owned by RWE (59%), J-Power (25%) and Kansai Electric Power (16%), with RWE leading the wind farm’s construction and long-term operation and maintenance works, on behalf of the project partners. The total planned investment volume amounts to approximately £2 billion.

Triton Knoll was awarded a Contract for Difference (CfD) by the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in September 2017. In 2018, it secured a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Ørsted, under which the company will offtake 100% of the power produced by the wind farm.

In addition to
Triton Knoll , NKT is involved in ongoing offshore wind projects such as Hornsea 2, Moray East and Dogger Bank.
