DNV GL’s technical expertise was a part of the due diligence of the Bjerkreim cluster, a 294MW group of wind farms in Norway. The German asset manager for renewable energy investments Luxcara recently entered long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for 100% of the output and environmental attributes of the three contiguous wind projects.
Working alongside Norwegian developer Norsk Vind Energi and the owner and long-term operator of the wind farms Luxcara, DNV GL’s employees conducted technical due diligence of the projects to identify and mitigate against technical and financial project risks, including site conditions, site suitability, turbine technology, construction contracts, grid connection, installation programme and permitting. The three wind farms are comprised of 70 Siemens Gamesa 4.2MW turbines, located near Stavanger in Norway. The company conducted a technical analysis of all three wind farm sites and undertook wind measurement campaign specifications, layout design, site meteorological conditions assessment, turbine selection and final energy yield assessment.
