Where are you in your
project planning?

Pre-development

Before development can start and before any investment can be made, a robust business case must be established.

Our multi-specialist team of experts can help you build a strategy for your business case and establish proof of concept to make the planning and approval stages more efficient and productive.

Whether your project is just a concept or you’ve got a site in mind, calculating your business case with all the variables mapped out is a great starting point for making some of these early decisions. Find out how our business case calculator can get you started.

Development

Any development is only as strong as the foundations that it is built on. Good energy project management starts at the earliest stages of project planning and early design decisions such as contracting strategy and contractor selection will have a major influence on the eventual outcome of any project. 

Specialist input from knowledgeable professionals is essential to ensuring an optimal technical design of a project and, ultimately, the best value business case.

Construction
Having your project in the right hands during construction is critical to having it completed on-time, on-spec and on-budget.

Projects are getting bigger, more complex and margins are being squeezed tighter and tighter, so specialist management and hands-on experience make all the difference.

From managing your project from beginning to end, or simply contributing experts into your implementation team, we ensure that lessons learnt from thousands of previous projects are applied for best possible result.

Operation
 The project is commissioned; the assets are generating power - now what?

Once a project is operational, it’s easy to think that the hard part is over and take the foot off the gas.
But in reality, this is the time that owners should be looking at ways to squeeze more value from their investment. Owners should be asking:
 
> How can I minimize down time?
> How can I tweak misalignment to improve performance?
> How can I make my project attractive for refinancing?
 
From operational analysis to asset management, these questions can be answered and project performance optimized through our independent advice.

Advisory
Getting the technicalities right can be the difference between an average and well-performing project.

Renewable energy might be advanced in many markets but project risks still require careful evaluation to deliver the best possible performance - both technically and financially.

Our advisory expertise spans analysis, risk management, due diligence, technical advisory and financial services - all of which come together to deliver better energy projects.

How we add value

Here’s some of the key roles we play in clients’ projects

Having an owner’s engineer that can work end-to-end but still take care of the finer details is something that gives our clients peace of mind.

From concept design to commissioning and everything in between, K2 Management’s engineers cover a broad range of expertise and have been involved in some of the world’s biggest and best projects.

Leveraging our hands-on experience from thousands of energy projects is a smart thing to do.

In our role as lender’s technical advisor, we see the projects of the future five years before they generate their first kW of power.

We see innovative solutions to future challenges. We see mistakes and risks at an early stage, when they can still be mitigated. We gather insights from across the market as we assist lenders and investors across the globe.

Most importantly, and thanks to all of these insights, we see things that others don’t. And that adds value to our clients and their projects.

Engaging in detailed yield analysis at an early stage is arguably the best way to optimize project yield before the shovel hits the soil.

Everyone wants an attractive project with the best yield estimate but if that estimate isn’t accurate, it all means nothing.

Accuracy is key and minimizing uncertainty will give developers and investors the best picture of their project’s future.

That’s why we pride ourselves on continuously improving our methods, going above and beyond industry standards and validating our methods. To give our clients the most accurate, bankable yield picture of their project.

When our clients are constructing a wind farm, they want to keep quality and safety high, budget and time on track and they want to deliver the best project possible.

Getting project execution right isn’t easy, particularly for our clients who don’t have a suite of experts in-house to tap into.

Our project management expertise spans package management, HSEQ, quality management, regulatory support, balance of plant management and much more, either separately or as a full, end-to-end role.

We match our expertise to our client’s need to deliver their project on time, on spec and on budget.

Wind Farm Wake and Turbine Interaction Effects: 4 ways to reduce the uncertainty of energy yield prediction

With the growing scale of wind farms, both onshore and offshore, there has been increased focus on wake, or turbine interaction, effects in recent years. Due to the size and multi-array nature of offshore wind farms, turbine interaction effects are typically one of the dominant impacts on the energy yield of these projects. 

The blockage effect, a particular aspect of turbine interaction effects, has been a prominent topic in the wind industry since October 2019, when Ørsted reduced the long-term energy yield predictions for their portfolio of wind farms which had a significant financial impact. The blockage effect phenomenon is observed upwind of wind farms where the operational wind turbine generators (WTGs) act as an obstacle to the wind flow and cause a deceleration of the wind speeds entering the wind farm, reducing the available kinetic energy.  

Taking the blockage effect into account as part of an energy yield prediction is becoming increasingly common but there is more at play to ensure the validity of your predictions.  

Here we discuss four steps that you can take to reduce uncertainty:

Turbine technology development – is bigger always better?

With each evolution of turbine technology, the trend is clear. Bigger turbine with bigger blades, bigger capacity and ultimately a bigger commercial benefit. However, there may come a point when going bigger isn’t commercially or economically viable and although it’s unclear when this might happen, it inspires some interesting questions.  

Some say bigger is better when it comes to turbines, but what challenges come with ever increasing technology and will there still be a market for smaller technology?
