NKT’s contribution to the green transformation of the UK consists of two 50 km long 220 kV three-core XLPE HVAC export cable systems and 144 km of 66 kV array cables. The export cable systems link two offshore substation platforms to the onshore electrical grid and the array cables connect the 90 wind turbines and link those to the offshore substation. The project was executed in a consortium with Boskalis Subsea Cables and Flexibles.
Realizing an offshore wind project during the Covid-19 pandemic, the project team faced exceptional challenges. While continuing working on the project, it was always top priority to follow the required regulations and ensure the staff stayed healthy and well.
Triton Knoll is planned to be fully operational in 2022 and will provide 800,000 UK households with renewable energy. We are proud to say that – despite a challenging execution during 2020 – all our works were successfully completed on time.
Even in an exceptionally challenging situation, NKT has yet again proven to be a substantial and reliable partner in connecting a greener world.
