RWE Innogy has revised plans for the proposed Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm project, which is being developed off the Lincolnshire Coast in the North Sea. Work on the site design has resulted in RWE Innogy deciding to progress the development with a reduced capacity which ranges between 600 and 900 megawatts, rather than the maximum of 1200 megawatts. The new capacity would ensure enough energy to power the equivalent domestic needs of between 550,000 and 800,000 average UK households.
The revised site design would also ensure the efficiency and utilisation of the site is maximised. Project Manager Jacob Hain said: 'The recent optimisation work is part of a project review to make the site more competitive and more economic in line with Government proposals to bring down the cost of offshore wind.'
