With SgurrEnergy serving as technical advisor, the last of the 40 wind turbines on the Borkum West II offshore wind farm were successfully installed in June. The project will now move into the commissioning phase.
SgurrEnergy’s advisory services covered construction monitoring on the development, including monthly reporting to the project lenders on construction progress, programme and budget reviews, as well as on-site monitoring of progress through site visits. SgurrEnergy will continue to advise the lender during the commissioning phase, which is currently expected to be completed in early 2015.
The project is being developed, constructed and operated by Trianel Windfraftwerk Borkum GmbH & Co. KG (TWB). “We have enjoyed working closely with SgurrEnergy’s team, who have been involved in the project as early as 2009, where they helped progress the development to financial close," said Manuel Eck, managing director of TWB. “More recently, SgurrEnergy’s construction monitoring services have been very important in supporting the Borkum West project through the construction phase, and we will continue to work closely with them while bringing the wind farm into operation.”
