Canadian energy company Northland Power (Northland) has awarded BLIX Consultancy a framework agreement to assist with the development of Northland’s worldwide 12 GW offshore wind project portfolio.

Services to be rendered under the framework agreement include amongst others: tender support, feasibility studies, EIA expertise, LCOE optimisation, site data analysis, site investigation scoping and campaign management, owner’s engineering services, turbine and balance of plant package management, as well as contracting and procurement support.

Support from the Netherlands, Japan and South-Korea

Managing Director Roeland Steenhuis: “BLIX has been supporting Northland in offshore wind projects since 2016. It started off with tender support in The Netherlands, Germany and Scotland and in 2018 we helped Northland win the Hai Long II and III offshore wind farm bid in Taiwan. We have been supporting the Hai Long project ever since. We are thankful for the received trust in our capabilities and look forward to keep supporting Northland from our offices in The Netherlands, Taiwan and South-Korea.”

Northland’s offshore wind project portfolio now includes amongst other the 1044 MW Hai Long (Taiwan), the 600 MW Chiba (Japan) and the 1000 MW Dado Ocean (South-Korea) projects, as well as the recently announced 1200 MW Baltic Power project (Poland), to be developed with PKN Orlen. In the Netherlands Northland has a 60 % stake in the 600 MW Gemini offshore wind farm. Source: BLIX Consultancy
