James Fisher Marine Services has been awarded a latest contract by Innogy’s Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm to begin offshore site preparations this Spring. The contract success comes less than two weeks after the publication of the Offshore Sector Deal between the industry and government, which seeks to promote opportunities for investment and growth at UK coastal communities and businesses.

It also coincides with JFMS’s expansion into new facilities at Grimsby, buoyed it says by the increasing volume of offshore contracts up for grabs including from Triton Knoll, while demonstrating the delivery of new investment into the UK supply chain.

The Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm site is located more than 32 kilometres (km) off the Lincolnshire coast and consists of an offshore construction site of over 145 km2 - bigger than the city of Manchester. JFMS’s role will be to investigate and clear locations, where earlier site surveys have identified potential obstructions to construction such as unexploded ordnance (UXO) and boulders.

The works will utilise a number of vessels and expert crews in parallel with a number of east coast ports including Grimsby likely to be involved. The contract is critical to the safe and efficient installation of the 90 turbines, two offshore substations and miles of inter-array and export cables that make up the 857 megawatt (MW) wind farm, the largest in the innogy portfolio.

Triton Knoll will consist of 90 MHI Vestas turbines, each with a maximum installed capacity of 9.5 MW. innogy is managing the construction of the offshore giant on behalf of its three-way partnership with J-Power and Kansai Electric Power.
