February 7 (Renewables Now) - Sustainable energy consultancy K2 Management said Thursday it has been given the role of owner’s engineer for the 30.1-MW Stigafjellet wind park in Norway, owned by the City of Zurich’s energy utility EWZ.
The owner’s engineer mandate is a result of a successful due diligence assessment that K2 Management performed for EWZ last year, which led to the utility's acquisition of the Stigafjellet wind project.
K2 Management’s duties will include electrical and foundation design review, milestone inspections, take-over inspection and construction monitoring for the duration of the construction phase, the consultancy said.
The construction of the Stigafjellet onshore wind farm begins in the first quarter of 2019. Commercial operations are expected to start in the summer of 2020.
