1.2GW Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Continues Moving Forward
The massive 1.2GW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm being developed by RWE continues to move forward. The wind farm, to be built off the coast of Lincolnshire, England (in the North Sea), is currently in the process of choosing where its grid connections will be, via public consultation.
RWE has narrowed it down to three possible locations for an “intermediate electrical compound in the East Lindsey area, and four options for building an onshore electricity substation in the area to the south west of Boston.”
The public consultation will begin on February 19th.
The Planning Inspectorate finished its examination of the proposed project just last week, and a final decision on whether the project can move forward will probably be given by the Secretary of State within the next three months.
