MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has received a firm and unconditional order for the 860 MW Triton Knoll offshore project in the UK. The order has been placed by Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Ltd. and comprises 90 V164-9.5 MW turbines.
They have also signed a service and maintenance agreement for 5 years. MHI Vestas will establish its wind turbine pre-assembly operations at Able UK’s Seaton Port in Teesside, ranging from enabling works to loadout. The company anticipates that its wind turbine pre-assembly operations will generate 40-50 local jobs, either directly or indirectly at supporting service businesses. MHI Vestas will manage all logistics and pre-assembly activity for the project. Turbine tower sections, blades and nacelles will be stockpiled and pre-assembled at Seaton, before being loaded on to construction vessels for transport and installation at the wind farm, 32 kilometres offshore.
