MHI Vestas to supply 860 MW of turbines for Innogy offshore project in UK

MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Vestas Wind Systems A/S and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., said it will supply 90 turbines for Innogy SE's planned 860-MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm off the coast of Lincolnshire, U.K.

The contract also includes MHI Vestas's maintenance services for a 5-year duration for what the company described as the "largest project" in its history. The company will deliver its V164-9.5 MW turbine models. The company will also execute the preassembly operations of the turbines at Able UK's Seaton Port in Teesside.

On the same day, the project owner Innogy announced separately that it secured a debt financing of £1.75 billion from a consortium of 15 banks for the planned wind farm. Under a recent agreement, Innogy will divest its 41% of the equity stake in the Triton Knoll project to two Japanese utilities Electric Power Development Co. Ltd. and Kansai Electric Power Co., while retaining 59% of the remaining interests in the project.
