The wind farm, named Triton, is located about 30 kilometers south of Isterd and consists of up to 129 turbines with a maximum height of 370 meters, OX2 said.

“We are very pleased to be able to take the next step in the development of Triton. The wind farm will be built with a proven technology, a fixed bottom structure, which will shorten the construction period. When completed, it will be completed. The wind farm will be completed.
