Asset Management for Danish wind farm

Appointed Encavis in early 2018, K2 Management was tasked with a wind turbine inspection as part of a wider technical due diligence review.

We performed a full inspection on eight 3.3MW Vestas wind turbines on the Nørhede Wind Farm in Denmark including gearbox endoscope inspection, to ensure that the turbines were safe and suitable for operation.

The review included inspection of:

  • Foundations
  • Electrical system
  • Safety equipment
  • Tower
  • Hub and pitch system
  • Yaw system
  • Hydraulic system
  • Blades
  • Gearbox including video endoscopy.

Global head of Asset Management at K2 Management, Carsten Brinck, said: “The accuracy of wind turbine inspection during a proposed acquisition can mean the difference between mediocre turbine performance and performance that can be optimized into a fantastic business case. Knowledge is power, and we were happy to support Encavis with asset management support during this acquisition.”

We engaged K2 Management for this scope due to their significant experience across the wind sector, and we were particularly pleased with their detailed and timely delivery of their turbine inspection reports. The team’s in-depth support gave us a complete picture of the technological aspects of the site as part of our acquisition.
