Northland Power has awarded BLIX Consultancy with a framework agreement to assist with the development of its worldwide offshore wind portfolio.
BLIX will provide tender support, feasibility studies, EIA expertise, LCOE optimization, owner’s engineering services, and contracting and procurement support.
Under the agreement, the Netherlands-based company will also provide site data analysis, site investigation scoping and campaign management, as well as turbine and balance of plant package management, amongst others.
“BLIX has been supporting Northland in offshore wind projects since 2016. It started off with tender support in The Netherlands, Germany and Scotland and in 2018 we helped Northland win the Hai Long II and III offshore wind farm bid in Taiwan,” said BLIX Managing Director Roeland Steenhuis.
“We have been supporting the Hai Long project ever since. We are thankful for the received trust in our capabilities and look forward to keep supporting Northland from our offices in The Netherlands, Taiwan and South-Korea.”
Northland Power currently has over 1.2 GW of gross offshore wind operating capacity and an additional 4 to 5 GW of gross capacity in projects under development, including Hai Long in Taiwan, Chiba in Japan, Dado Ocean in South Korea, Baltic Power in Poland, and Nordsee Two/Three in Germany.
It was recently announced that the company is preparing to bid in the ongoing offshore wind tender in Germany for the N-3.8, N-3.7, and O-1.3 offshore wind areas.
