Exhibition for off-shore wind farm at Triton Knoll

An exhibition is under way showing plans for a wind farm of almost 300 turbines off the Lincolnshire coast.

RWE Npower Renewables is showing details of how power from the Triton Knoll wind farm will be transported to the National Grid.

The exhibition explains how cables will run from the wind farm to the shore at Anderby Creek.

They will then continue underground to a compound near Skegness before linking to a substation at Bicker Fen.

A public consultation on the project runs until 5 April.

The wind farm will be 20 miles off the coast at Mablethorpe with up to 288 turbines, depending on their size.
