Energy companies Innogy and Statkraft are suddenly busy. This Monday, the UK awarded offshore wind projects and the duo's Triton Knoll Offshoer wind farm of 860 MW was among the three winners. The project is scheduled for first wind in 2021 – one year before the other two projects – so the process will now have to pick up speed.
Unlike Dong Energy's Hornsea 2 project, a final investment decision has not yet been made for Triton Knoll. This is expected to happen in the middle of next year, informs Innogy, which at the moment is celebrating that the likely largest obstacle has now been overcome.
