Triton Knoll names preferred installerThe Triton Knoll (www.tritonknoll.co.uk) offshore wind-farm project has confirmed Teesside-based MPI Offshore Ltd (www.mpi-offshore.com) as the preferred installer of its wind-turbine foundations and offshore sub-stations.

MPI is one of a number of UK firms being announced as preferred suppliers to the project off the Lincolnshire coast.

MPI will install a total of 92 monopile foundations and transition pieces, plus two offshore substations, in an all-weather inclusive turn-key operation.

Additional scope includes the engineering, project management, quayside logistics and ‘scour protection’installation; the MPI Discovery jack-up vessel will lift, transport and install all the foundations.

While still at the ‘preferred supplier’ stage, the wind-farm project will now work with MPI to maximise its already strong UK footprint and realise its commitment of delivering at least 50% of UK content across the project life-cycle.

Triton Knoll project director James Cotter said: “MPI already has a great UK footprint and engagement with the UK supply chain, and we expect to now work even more closely with them to build on that, as we progress towards contract completion and the start of offshore works.

"We and our top-tier contractors will be working with the most cost-efficient suppliers to deliver this project, along with our commitments to UK jobs and contracts.

"MPI is an important part of our business plan, which aims to deliver at least 50% UK content over the lifetime of the project, while creating significant value for the UK and energy consumers from the delivery of our wind farm.

"As a UK-based industry specialist — and one of the world’s leading offshore component installers — we are delighted to have MPI on board.”

Triton Knoll will have a generation cap-acity of 860MW, with MHI Vestas’ 9.5MW turbines the preferred choice. It is being developed as a joint venture between Innogy and Statkraft, with Innogy managing the project on behalf of the partnership.
