K2 Management secures owner's engineer role for MarWin

In: Windfarms

K2 Management has been appointed owner’s engineer on what will be the largest project off the coast of Maryland in the United States,
MarWin, on behalf of developer US Wind.

The scope on the circa. 270 MW project will see K2 Management supporting US Wind with project management during the development phase. The scope also includes design and engineering and package management, including tender and negotiation support.

Jeff Grybowski, CEO at US Wind, commented: “US Wind has big plans to deliver offshore wind to Maryland, contributing to the long-term economic growth of the state with employment opportunities and local investments. We appointed K2 Management as owner’s engineer on our flagship MarWin project to elevate the technical capabilities on what will be Maryland’s largest offshore wind project.”

Lars Andersen, President, Americas at K2 Management, said: “K2 Management understands what it takes to deliver complex offshore wind projects – from navigating technical challenges to driving financial optimization – and this expertise underpins our work in the US offshore wind market.

“In entering this partnership with US Wind, K2 Management brings years of offshore wind technical expertise and experience from the global offshore industry to one of the first offshore projects in the Mid-Atlantic region.”

US Wind acquired an 80,000-acre federal lease area off of the coast of Maryland in 2014. In 2017, the company was awarded Offshore Renewable Energy Credits (ORECs) from the State of Maryland for the first phase of its
MarWin project.

In total, the company’s lease area can support approximately 1.5 GW of offshore wind energy capacity. In 2019, Maryland passed the Clean Energy Jobs Act, which increased the state’s offshore wind energy requirements, calling for an additional 1.2 GW to be procured from developers with projects near the state’s coast.
