Scottish renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy has been selected as lender's technical and environmental advisor to an international banking consortium for the Lincs offshore wind farm.
The Lincs wind farm, which is expected to be completed in 2013, is being developed by Centrica, Dong Energy and Siemens Project Ventures. The project features 75 Siemens SWT-3.6-120 3.6 MW wind turbines and is the first offshore wind farm in the U.K. to be financed pre-completion, SgurrEnergy says.
During the financing process, the company says it reviewed the wind farm design, installation method and contractual structure, as well as financial and energy yield assumptions and environmental considerations.
According to SgurrEnergy, its scope of work also included construction monitoring and the assessment of delay construction-delay scenarios.
