May 2 (Renewables Now) - Denmark-based wind power consultancy PEAK Wind on Monday said it has secured a five-year agreement to provide operations and asset management services for the 148.4-MW Blue Cloud wind farm in Texas.
The onshore wind farm, which has been in operation since late 2018, is part of the Copenhagen Infrastructure II K/S fund of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).
PEAK Wind took over managing the asset from the existing service provider on February 1. The contract has extension options.
The firm, which also provides balance of plant (BoP) services, says it now has more than 1,500 MW of wind farms under management, including a wind farm of about 500 MW in Spain and around 886 MW of offshore assets in Taiwan.
According to the announcement, its expansion into the US market for operations and asset management services is in line with its global growth strategy and adds to its activities of providing consultancy services on behalf of a number of US clients.
“This agreement presents a steppingstone for further expanding PEAK Wind’s renewable asset management activities in Texas and the US as a whole,” said Denis Nornberg Andersen, co-founder and head of asset management at PEAK Wind.
