VOWTAP | 12 MW US offshore project

Virginia Offshore Wind Technology Advancement Project (VOWTAP) is developing a 12 MW offshore test wind project approximately 27 miles off the coast of Virginia in the United States.

The project will feature two (2) GE 6 MW Haliade turbines, scheduled for construction in 2018.

The primary VOWTAP objectives are to:

  • Design, develop, and demonstrate a state-of-the art grid-connected project

  • Employ technology innovations and research that will inform and benefit future commercial scale offshore wind projects

  • Develop technology and process solutions that will contribute to establishing offshore wind as a cost-effective renewable energy solution for the United States.

To ensure those ambitions are met, VOWTAP appointed K2 Management with their significant offshore project experience as an independent external expert and offshore wind technical advisor.

Work has been focused on the review and re-scoping of contracts, validation of tenders, and assessment of weather downtime and contingency for installation.

During the engagement, K2 Management has been highly flexible and been able to provide valuable expert advice within short timeframes and within budget. K2 Management's direct involvement in the review and update of our multi-contracting approach has helped us driving down cost significantly. Additionally, we have gained more clarity of the bidders and their scope of work, helping to determine project strategic overview and path forward.

We appreciate and can highly recommend K2 Management.
