E.ON Energy Services has been contracted to provide services for Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’ (CIP) 196.7 MW Bearkat I wind farm, located in Glasscock County, Texas.
E.ON will provide on-site construction management and project management services for the Vestas-powered wind farm, which is currently under construction. E.ON will also provide on-site supervision and management of a number of other services, including balance-of-plant monitoring.
Building the facility is Black & McDonald, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
“Bearkat I is our second wind project under construction in the U.S., and it is great to have experienced players like E.ON to work with,” says Christian Skakkebæk, senior partner at CIP.
Patrick Woodson, chairman of E.ON in North America, adds, “We are offering help throughout the value chain – from energy management, asset management, construction management and full operational support. This sector continues to grow as a multitude of international investors, financial players and midsize developers alike are entering the U.S. market.”
