K2 Management has been appointed by Canada’s Northland Power to manage the construction of the 252-MW Deutsche Bucht (DeBu) offshore wind farm project in the German North Sea.
The Denmark-based wind consultancy said on Monday it has secured a lump sum service agreement for the project, including full-scope construction management, from the pre-construction phase to the start of commercial operations. The EUR-1.2-billion (USD 1.4bn) wind farm is expected to come online by the end of 2019.
K2 said it has been involved in the project since 2013. The firm has provided engineering and development services, and assisted in bringing the scheme to financial close and through to its acquisition by Northland Power from Highland Group in August.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind will supply and install 31 units of its V164 8.0 MW wind turbines at the site.
