Energy Infrastructure Partners joined RWE Renewables (formerly E.ON) to finance the project before construction began in 2019. The project was developed by RWE, a leading European utility company and a global player in on- and offshore wind, who remain co-investor with a 20% stake in the project.
The scope of the ready-to-build project involves all aspects of construction from building roads and foundations to ultimately connecting the last turbine to the grid. This work is carried out by main contractor and turbine supplier Nordex, to be delivered turnkey in 2021.
With the benefit of owner-incentivized attention to wind farm performance and technical integrity, RWE is the operations and maintenance (O&M) service provider, under a responsibility regime that aligns incentives and mitigates both construction and operational risks.
