Triton Knoll offshore wind farm Ltd, (Triton Knoll) a subsidiary of RWE Innogy UK (RWE) and Statkraft is planning to undertake the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm project in the North Sea 32km from the Lincolnshire coast, the UK.

The project involves the construction of an offshore wind farm between 600MW and 900 MW. The project will be developed in three phases. It includes the construction of a substation and other related infrastructure and the installation of up to 288 wind turbines and undersea cables.

RWE has shortlisted three locations including a site off the A52 in the vicinity of Skegness industrial estate, an area off Marsh Lane near Orby, and an area just west of Skegness on land between the A52 and A158 for the development of the project.The Electrical System is connected with the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm.
