Danish company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has hired E.ON Energy Services to deliver an array of services for its 196.7MW Bearkat I windfarm in the US.
Located in Texas, the facility is currently being built by the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor Black & McDonald.
CIP's senior partner Christian Skakkebæk said: “Bearkat I is our second wind project under construction in the US and it is great to have experienced players like E.ON to work with.
“Being able to go to a single company that has the breadth of knowledge to provide multiple solutions is extremely helpful and makes for a seamless experience.”
Under the deal, E.ON Energy Services will be responsible for delivering onsite construction and project management services for the project. The company will also provide transition support from late stage development to commercial operation date (COD), in addition to offering on-site supervision, balance of plant and energy management, QSE scheduling, and asset management services.
E.ON's North America chairman Patrick Woodson said: “E.ON is pleased to be working with such an experienced and professional team at CIP.
“We want to help facilitate their growth in the US market as they continue to expand their investment portfolio.”
The Bearkat I windfarm will be equipped with Vestas turbines. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
