Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has hired E.ON Energy Services (EES) to provide an array of services for its 196.7 MW Bearkat I wind farm in Glasscock County, Texas. The facility is currently under construction and E.ON Energy Services will provide onsite construction management and project management services for the project. Black & McDonald is the EPC contractor building the facility.
In addition to construction management and transition support from late stage development to operational COD, E.ON will provide on-site supervision and balance of plant management, energy management and QSE scheduling, as well as asset management services.
"Bearkat I is our second wind project under construction in the U.S. and it is great to have experienced players like E.ON to work with," said Christian Skakkebæk, Senior Partner at CIP. "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."
"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 U.S. market as they continue to expand their investment portfolio," said Patrick Woodson, Chairman of E.ON in North America.
"E.ON Energy Services provides an array of service packages that allow a Sponsor to customize to suit their needs. We are offering help throughout the value chain from energy management, asset management, construction management and full operational support. This sector continues to grow as a multitude of international investors, financial players and mid-sized developers alike are entering the U.S. market," Woodson added.
Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The site will utilize Vestas turbines.
