Triton Knoll Electrical Connection & Sub-station

Landscape and Visual Appraisal


Triton-Knoll-Electrical-Connection-&-Sub-station-power-lines-turbinesA landscape and visual appraisal, in combination with a wider environmental and technical assessment, was undertaken to assess the opportunities and constraints associated with new electrical on-shore connections from the proposed Triton Knoll off-shore windfarm to feed into the national high-voltage electricity transmission system – the National Grid.

A number of options were determined of sub-station locations on the coastal fringes and associated overhead powerline connections, in particular following relevant landscape and visual guidance, including the Holford Rules.

Following the initial environmental and technical assessment, a preferred option was selected.
