Opportunities for local suppliers

31/01/2018 - 8.00am - 12.00pm - FOC

About the Event

Triton Knoll is a flagship offshore wind farm in the latter stages of development, and is owned by innogy, one of Europe’s leading renewables businesses. Located 20 miles off the east coast of Lincolnshire, the project will provide 860MW of electricity from 90 wind turbine generators and will take up to 4 years to complete.

The project team wants to maximise opportunities for Lincolnshire businesses to be involved in the construction of the project’s electrical system, which is due to start this summer. Triton Knoll, working together with the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub, is organising this key ‘meet the contractor’ event to highlight the prospects for supply and employment.

At the event, businesses will be able to hear about the project and meet in person the contractors responsible for delivery. J Murphy & Sons has been appointed to deliver the onshore underground cable circuits from near Anderby Creek through to Bicker Fen; while Siemens Transmission and Distribution Ltd will be responsible for the construction of the onshore substation at Bicker Fen. Both of these contractors have provided a ‘shopping list’ of local services that they are likely to require, and this can be found listed below.

To register to drop in to this event for an informal chat and to confirm whether or not you want to book a one to one meeting with one of the contractors, please email ray.newell@bizlincolnshire.com. An appointment time will be allocated in advance of the event. Booking for a one to one appointment is essential.

As well as the contractors, the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub will be present to answer any of your questions regarding the support available to help you engage with this project.

Businesses are required to complete the supplier registration database on the Triton Knoll website before arrivalwww.tritonknoll.co.uk/supply-chain/suppliers-form. Businesses unable to attend this event can still register their interest in supplying Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm and its contractors by using the same form.

The Triton Knoll database of registered contractors will be shared with all the project’s main contractors, including Murphys and Siemens.
