To support our client with their bid, BLIX managed:
Preparing an LCoE comparison tool for the offshore wind energy
For an undisclosed client, BLIX prepared an LCoE comparison tool for the offshore wind energy business cases with different foundation types (monopiles, jackets and floating foundations).
Client asked this tool to use it for understanding the commercial break even points for changing the foundation type for the current and future projects that they will work on. Together with the model, BLIX also shared an insight to the future of floating wind market.
Export markets assessment for the Dutch offshore wind industry
We conducted a market study on offshore wind energy in the Baltics: ‘Export markets assessment for the Dutch offshore wind industry: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania’.
For each of the three Baltic States countries, BLIX assessed the policy and regulatory environment, the offshore grid infrastructure plan, maritime spatial plan, the offshore wind value and supply chain, and current development activities. The purpose of the study is to inform Dutch companies who are active in the offshore wind energy business and who seek opportunities in the Baltic States.
Levelised Cost of Energy reduction: Selection of optimal wind farm sites
IJmuiden Ver, Hollandse Kust, Ten Noorden van de Wadden (total >6 GW)
Detailed LCoE study verifying several variants based on:
- Turbine yield and wake losses
- Wind farm design including inter-array cabling
- Obstacles (shipping lanes, pipelines, helicopter routes, defence area, fishing maintenance zones, etc)
- Enable subsidy free tender due to optimal site conditions 169 €/MWh -> 87 €/MWh
- Lower risk for developers
Wind farm Kroningswind
On behalf of TDP (TINC Development Partners), BLIX carried out a technical buyer’s due diligence for the 19 turbines, 80 MW wind farm in the south-west of the Netherlands. BLIX supported the buyer with a red flag analysis, risk analysis and remaining investment and operational costs to determine the value of the project.
