Construction News Image
J Murphy & Sons has won a £100 million contract to help deliver a new major offshore wind farm project off the coast of Lincolnshire.

The 860MW Triton Knoll scheme is scheduled to begin main construction of the substation and cable route later this summer.

With initial works beginning onshore, Murphy are preparing to install the project's onshore cable circuits, part of the Triton Knoll Electrical System (TKES), which stretches from the point of landfall near Anderby Creek, to a new Triton Knoll Substation at Bicker Fen.

Almost 60kms of onshore underground cable will be installed, while over 300 obstacles will be crossed by individual horizontal direction drills in what is one of the biggest engineering challenges of its kind.

Overall, initial works will include;

• Installation of temporary office accommodation


• Construction of several temporary construction compounds

• Preparation of various access roads along the route

• Establishment of speed restrictions several major roads

• Topsoil stripping along parts of the onshore cable route

Murphy Chief Executive Officer, John Murphy, said: "This is one of the biggest power projects that Murphy will have worked on and it's a real marker of the upward direction in which our business is going, as we continue to develop and grow.

"To have been chosen for such a large and prestigious project shows that we are trusted by innovative companies like innogy to deliver world-class infrastructure projects that will improve people's lives. It's an incredibly exciting and complex project, and we're looking forward to working closely with innogy to provide first-rate results."

Triton Knoll Project Director Julian Garnsey said: "We are delighted to award this contract to our supply chain partners Murphy. This contract secures significant investment into the UK supply chain, which will open up additional opportunities for more local firms to support innogy's flagship offshore wind farm, Triton Knoll.

"Murphy has already engaged local firms during preliminary works for Triton Knoll, and has demonstrated their willingness to continue working with us to ensure we can maximize opportunities from our investments for local and UK businesses, throughout the project lifecycle.

"We're very excited that Murphy is now on board as we prepare to start onshore construction in the coming weeks and months."
