The Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has engaged K2 Management to build a global installation database for offshore wind. The objective is to provide NREL and thereby the U.S. wind industry with easily accessible data on installation times, correlation effects, implications, and processes to secure use of best practice and avoid delays and cost overrun on all the planned U.S. offshore wind projects.
“We will use a mix of public available data, anonymous internal project data, and interviews with K2 Management staff to map real experience, time consumption, and pitfalls in the various parts of these projects,” said Carsten Jensen, managing director of K2 Management in the U.S. “The ambition is to get as much validated data as possible in the database, so we can service all main aspects and differentiate for example between jackets and monopiles. We are very much looking forward to be working together with NREL and servicing the US wind industry.”
K2 Management has commenced the project and work is scheduled until mid-July 2014.
