Two OTMs will be installed onto a monopile foundation and connected to a national grid substation.

Mike Grainger, Director of Siemens Grid Access said: “We are delighted to award these first contracts to deliver the transmission system for the Triton Knoll offshore windfarm. All partners are hugely experienced and share a commitment to reducing the overall cost of energy.

“These are the first of a number of contracts which Siemens will award to organisations on the Triton Knoll project while managing the project’s electrical transmission system out of our offices in Manchester.”

The Triton Knoll project is set to have a capacity of 860MW and will be able to power the equivalent of 800,000 UK households with renewable energy.

The project is to involve $2.6bn (£2bn) investment with construction starting late next year, with commissioning to begin in 2021.
