Northland Moves Closer to German Offshore Wind Projects
Canadian power company Northland Power Inc. has opened an offshore wind operations hub in Germany.
The hub represents an expansion of Northland’s focus on offshore wind operations.
Initial activities are focused on achieving synergies across the 332MW Nordsee One wind farm, which commenced commercial operations in 2017, and the 269MW Deutsche Bucht project, which is currently in construction, the company said. The team will also support Northland’s global project development work.
Operations and maintenance activities, including remote monitoring and control of the wind turbines and substations, have been centralized in a port-side facility in the village of Norddeich. Commercial and engineering activities are being managed from a new office in the Hamburg area.
“I’m pleased to welcome the Northland team to their new headquarters,” said Troy Patton, Chief Operations Officer at Northland.
“With two operating offshore wind farms in the North Sea, and a third in construction, the operational focus of our business in Europe is evolving. We have the people, expertise, and proximity to expand our capabilities and realize significant synergies, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to strong results and continued growth.”
