Triton Knoll, which is being constructed by RWE, will install and operate 90 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines. The first 15 turbine blades to arrive at the Able Seaton Port were manufactured by MHI Vestas at its Isle of Wight UK facility and finished at its Fawley plant across the Solent.
MHI Vestas recently moved onto the 140,000 sq metre Able Seaton Port, where it is establishing a full turbine logistics and pre-assembly hub for the RWE-managed joint venture project. During its site preparations, MHI Vestas has prioritised UK companies in the delivery of the project. ASP now hosts technicians on-site from local suppliers, including Global Wind Service (GWS), Dawson and Boston Energy, as well as MHI Vestas employees. The main crane and Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) to be used at ASP for moving turbine components will be supplied by Weldex, based out of Alfreton, UK. Finally, site stevedoring services are supplied by Able.
