Triton Knoll has confirmed UK-based MPI Offshore Ltd as preferred supplier for the transportation and installation of its offshore wind turbine foundations and offshore substations.
The Stokesley (Teesside) based outfit is one of a string of top UK firms being announced as preferred suppliers to the project, and demonstrating Triton Knoll’s commitment to providing UK value across both the supply chain and in terms of low cost energy for consumers.
MPI will install a total of 92 monopile foundations and transition pieces, and two offshore substations in an all-weather inclusive turnkey operation. Additional scope includes the engineering, project management, quayside logistics and scour protection installation. The MPI Discovery (1) jack-up vessel will lift, transport and install all the foundations.
While still at preferred supplier stage, the wind farm project will now work with MPI to maximise the specialist’s already strong UK footprint and realise its commitment of delivering at least 50% of UK content across the project lifecycle.
