Construction has begun on the 860 MW capacity, Triton Knoll Wind Farm. The wind farm is located approximately 20 miles off the coast of Lincolnshire, England in the North Sea. The owners of the project are Innogy Renewables UK Ltd. (59%), J-Power (25%) and Kansai Electric Power (16%).
Innogy will be responsible for the construction and operations of the Triton Knoll Wind Farm. Innogy develops and operates renewable energy projects and is headquartered in Swindon, United Kingdom. J-Power is an electric utility, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Kansai Electric is an electric and natural gas utility, headquartered in Osaka, Japan.
Japan’s private sectors invested in numerous oil and natural gas projects around the world in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, Japan’s private sector is investing heavily in global renewable energy projects. In my opinion, J-Power and Kansai Electric’s investments will provide Innogy a much need financial stimulus and will ensure the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm is successfully completed.
