The Triton Knoll offshore windfarm in the UK has reached an important milestone as turbine blades destined to be installed on the 857-MW offshore windfarm arrive at the project construction port in Teesside
Able Seaton Port, near Hartlepool on the east coast of the UK, is receiving offshore wind turbine components for the first time in its history after a multi-million pound investment that transformed the port into a specialist assembly and construction facility for use by turbine supplier MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
Triton Knoll, which is being constructed by RWE, will use 90 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines.
The first 15 turbine blades to arrive at the port were manufactured by MHI Vestas at its Isle of Wight, UK facility and finished at its Fawley plant.
MHI Vestas recently moved to the 140,000-m2 Able Seaton Port, where it is establishing a full turbine logistics and pre-assembly hub for the RWE-managed joint venture project.
