Mick George Ltd has been appointed on behalf of J. Murphy and Sons to complete earthworks at the £2bn Triton Knoll offshore wind farm project

The firm will be stripping the easement where the cables will be placed for this 860MW project and will have the capability to transmit renewable electricity from the wind farm to more than 800,000 UK homes per year for Innogy.

Work involves the installation of more than 57km of underground high-voltage electrical export cable in Lincolnshire.

The route starts at the landfall location north of Anderby Creek, where the onshore and offshore cables connect.

It runs to a new substation being constructed near Bicker, and then to the existing National Grid Bicker Fen Substation where the electricity from the offshore wind farm will ultimately connect into the grid. Both are on the outskirts of Boston

More than 300 individual directional drills – a record for a UK infrastructure project – will ensure the onshore cables can be installed without obstructing any roads, highways, rivers or drains.

Although the two-year onshore construction programme is underway, offshore activities are not expected to begin until late 2019. First energy generation could be as early as 2021.

At the peak of the development, the project is anticipating upward of 3,000 employment opportunities.

Michael George, Managing Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’As a business that is well experienced in providing sustainable solutions through our waste management division, we recognise the importance of projects such as this and are excited to be involved.’’
