Triton Knoll wind farm set to break UK HDD record

Triton Knoll offshore wind farm developer Innogy Renewables has awarded onshore cabling contract to J Murphy & Sons that looks set to break the UK record for horizontal directional drilling (HDD).

Triton Knoll Electrical System (TKES) system includes 60km of underground cable installation and will use HDD techniques to overcome 300 obstacles on the route.

According to Murphy, this number is three times more than what’s believed to be the previous UK record for an infrastructure project.

Work on the £100M underground cable contract for the 860MW offshore wind farm has already got underway on site. The route will run from where the cable landfalls at Anderby Creek to a new Triton Knoll Substation at Bicker Fen.
