K2 Management was founded by Lars K Hammershøj and Per K Melgaard in Aarhus, Denmark, with a common goal of delivering independent technical advice to the energy sector.
K2 Management's first project was secured - EPC Management for Vestas on Banguai Bay Phase II in the Philippines.
A surge of contract wins saw K2 Management expand from its native Denmark to open offices in Hamburg, Germany; Boston, USA
K2 Management secured its first US offshore mandate as Owner's Engineer and Project Development Advisor for Cape Wind. This was the first foray into offshore wind for the US market - a fantastically interesting project to work on.
In response to demand from new markets, K2 Management expanded into Sao Paulo, Brazil; Taipei, Taiwan; Seoul, South Korea and Johannesburg, South Africa, bring the total number of offices to eight in just six years of operating.
The first big offshore owner's engineer mandate was secured in 2013, after Highland Group awarded K2 Management the role on its Deutsche Bucht project in the German North Sea. We continued this role for Northland Power throughout construction to operation.
Financial close on Veja Mate in the German North Sea - appointed in 2009 as lender's engineer, we went on to complete the full owner's engineer scope until the project became operational in 2017.
Following market growth, incentives and sustainable energy policies being developed in many parts of Asia, K2 Management opened an Asian hub in Bangkok, Thailand to pursue and support the development of renewables in these countries.
In 2016, we expanded into Cork, Ireland to support the UK team - now located in Glasgow, Scotland and Bristol, England - to deliver support to projects across Ireland.
K2 Management acquired global yield analysis consultancy, Prevailing. Founded in 2009, the company has been involved in over 1,200 projects in over 30 countries.
After working on the project for two years, Deutsche Bucht reached financial close in summer 2017, followed closely by the award of a new contract. K2 Management was awarded a lump sum service agreement for full scope construction management services on the €1.2bn project.
After 10 years as wind specialists, K2 Management is expanding its technical and project management services to support solar PV projects, diversifying due to client requirements and market demand.
In September of 2018, we agreed to acquire independent energy engineering consultancy, Cruz Atcheson.
Founded in 2015, Cruz Atcheson specialized in three key areas in the wave, tidal and floating wind sector: concept design, due diligence support and project development. The acquisition marks K2 Management’s entry into the wave, tidal and floating wind sector.
K2 Management is present on 5 continents and leads on pivotal industry work, including a four-year construction monitoring contract for the world’s largest offshore wind farm development, Dogger Bank Wind Farm.
The implementation of an exciting new strategy closes a successful year for K2 Management, now having 16 offices globally. We celebrated our 15th anniversary and cover 2,900 world-class projects combined for customers across the globe.
We pride ourselves by delivering a wide range of services within engineering, planning, management and due diligence, spanning the entire value chain of an energy project.
