MottMac delivers for Norther
UK outfit to provide construction and operational monitoring
Mott MacDonald is to provide construction and operational monitoring for the 370MW Norther wind farm off the Belgian coast.
The UK engineering consultancy was also the lenders’ technical advisor and delivered due diligence services during the financing of the €1.1bn project, which reached financial close last week.
The wind farm, which will consist of 44 MHI Vestas turbines, is expected to be fully operational by summer 2019.
“We have a deep understanding of the requirements of the lenders, having been involved on the project since 2010,” project manager Scott Love said.
“Our role on Norther continues our long-standing and vast involvement in the Belgian offshore wind sector, where we have provided technical advice on the five previous offshore wind farms – Belwind, Northwind, Thornton Bank, Nobelwind and recently Rentel – to reach financial close to date.”
