RWE cuts wind farm proposal

City A.M. Reporter
GERMAN utility RWE will reduce capacity at its planned Triton Knoll offshore wind farm in the UK North Sea by up to half, it said yesterday, weeks after it scrapped another wind project in British waters.

Triton Knoll’s capacity is now expected to range between 600 and 900 megawatts (MW), instead of the original 1,200 MW, RWE’s renewable energy subsidiary Innogy said.

At the end of November the company scrapped plans to build the Atlantic Array – one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms – saying it no longer made economic sense to build it.
