Next, the construction of a new infrastructure including all the park roads, crane sites, SCADA infra, the cabling of the park and customer substations, together the Balance of Plant and of course the 50 new wind turbines with a power of approximately 4 MW.
Aratis assists in the preparation and tender of the engineering, construction and installation of the complete wind farm in collaboration with Nuon. In addition, we are responsible for the tender process of the Balance of Plant lot under UAV-GC conditions and the wind turbine lot under FIDIC ‘yellow’ conditions. Two experienced procurement managers are deployed per lot by Aratis.
At the end of 2017, contracts will be ready for award. In 2018, the execution phase starts. The delivery of the Balance of Plant is foreseen in the spring of 2019, after which the turbines can be installed to be able to use them mid 2019.
