Find out more about our key services

Our specialists deliver services spanning the whole lifecycle of wind and solar projects from consenting and initial energy yield estimations to SCADA analysis and asset management.

Here's a preview of some of our services:

Analysis services

Accurate yield estimations are essential whether you're lending to, investing in, selling or building an energy project.

Find out how we used advanced techniques to create bankable energy yield estimations for wind and solar projects.

Power performance testing

With larger rotor diameter turbines being installed, and projects being subject to increasingly complex flow, it is crucial for project owners to know how each turbine is actually performing. 

Our specialists undertake IEC-compliant power performance testing and discrepancy investigations to make sure projects are performing.

ESB Wind Development | CFD and noise modelling

Development support and energy yield assessment for 120 MW Grousemount Wind Farm incorporating CFD and noise modelling

Development support and energy yield assessment for 120 MW Grousemount Wind Farm incorporating CFD and noise modelling

We have built up long-standing relationships with wind farm developers, operators and investors globally, working both to supplement their internal technical capability – providing analysis, advice and support as their projects progress – and also in an independent capacity for project financing.

Working with ESB Wind Development since 2009, we have provided a range of services on over 500 MW of in-development and operational projects in Ireland and the UK. The proposed 38-turbine Grousemount project in Ireland is significant because of its size, location, mountainous terrain and a number of complex constraints.

We have provided ongoing support throughout the development process – from layout design and monitoring advice, to noise  modelling and financial-grade energy yield assessment. The project is situated in mountainous terrain east of Kenmare in Co. Kerry. Due to restrictions regarding visual impact, many of the turbines are situated at lower elevations than the surrounding terrain, and consequently wind flow conditions across the site are challenging.

We undertook CFD modelling at an early stage to fully investigate wind flow conditions across the
site. Areas of onerous wind flow (high turbulence for example) were identified and this information
was used to micro-site turbine locations and hence maximise energy yield.

We presented CFD results to the client’s technical team with an interactive fly-through to ensure our findings were fully integrated into their layout design process. The same CFD results were later used to improve predictions of wind speed and turbine performance across the site.

Further support to the development team was provided through optimisation of noise constraint schemes for the project. Our in-house developed software selects optimal turbine operational modes, so that noise limits are met with minimal loss of energy.

With a long history of involvement in Butendiek, K2 Management supported ITOCHU Corporation in its 22.5% equity interest investment into the 288 MW wind farm – ITOCHU's first investment in European offshore wind.

K2 Management provided technical and wind due diligence on the transaction, focusing on performance and technology, project life and long-term OpEx and O&M strategy.   

ITOCHU Corporation, commented: “This project represents ITOCHU Corporation’s first European offshore wind investment and K2 Management’s technical advice, financial insight and operational performance expertise was invaluable to us in this acquisition.”

Simon Luby, Head of Global Due Diligence at K2 Management, said: “Working with ITOCHU Corporation on this transaction was a pleasure and our close working relationship is one of the key drivers of success for all the work we deliver for ITOCHU. 

“Our core team consisted of experts with real hands-on offshore wind experience covering development, construction and operation of such projects – that experience enables us to deliver much more focused, value-adding supporting within the often short timescales of these transactions. It was great to work on this project again, as I led the lender’s technical advisor assignment for Butendiek when it secured debt finance prior to its construction.”

"K2 Management offshore wind and project experience has been instrumental for the continued development and potential success of both projects. As advisors, K2 Management has professionally managed the technical and engineering aspects of our offshore projects."

Financial close reached in short time

Construction of the 402 MW German offshore project was completed in less than 14 months and just 23 months after financial close. Commissioning activities on the last turbine were completed end May 2017 – 4 months ahead of agreed schedule and below the budget agreed at financial close.

During the construction period K2 Management supported Copenhagen Offshore Partners (COP) and the Veja Mate Offshore Project with dedicated consultancy services.

The project was acquired in September 2014 by investment firm Highland Group Holdings Ltd, but at financial close in June 2015 sold to a consortium including Highland, Copenhagen Infrastructure II, a fund managed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, and Siemens Financial Services.

K2 Management has been supporting as owner’s engineer, technical advisor and as part of the project management team – including the role as Project Director – bringing Veja Mate to financial close in a very short time.

Services provided:

  • Wind energy and turbulence assessment
  • Scheduling
  • FEED study
  • Risk management
  • Interface management
  • Project structure development
  • Project organization development
  • Invitation to tender (ITT) structure development
