While onshore wind assets can be simpler to operate than other renewable technologies, they still need careful management to maintain the best performance.
Our remote teams can provide daily monitoring of your wind asset to ensure it performs to the highest industry standards. The services we provide are designed so that the day to-day running of your project is as smooth, safe and secure as possible, giving you peace of mind.
With our teams across the UK, we are close at hand to the wind assets we manage when site inspections are needed. Our experience of taking wind projects from concept, through development and construction to ongoing operation means that we understand the potential issues that can face wind assets and work to resolve them quickly.
Our excellent relationships with energy off-takers mean we can often secure more favourable Power Purchasing Agreements for our clients in PPA auctions. Better deals on PPAs are usually enjoyed only by investment funds with large renewables portfolios, but Eco2’s relationships and economies of scale means we can also help smaller operators access these deals, as well as our larger clients.
Unlike some other contractors or asset managers, we have the capability to provide 24/7 operational control centre support, in compliance with Renewables UK’s Wind Turbine Safety Rules.
Eco2 undertakes comprehensive operational and financial management role for ten onshore wind sites for the Foresight Group.
Services include 24/7 operational controller role under the Wind Turbines Safety Rules, health and safety audits, regular visual inspections, and management of the O&M and HV Contractors. Eco2 also undertakes monthly and quarterly reporting at a site and portfolio level, and company secretarial services.
In addition, Eco2 assisted with the refinancing of the portfolio and oversaw reporting to the bank as part of the facility agreement, and currently provides updates to the financial model. Eco2 also manages the finance for the holding companies, preparing year end accounts and providing company secretarial services.
Included in the Miller portfolio is the Port of Tilbury Wind Farm, comprising four Siemens 2.3 MW turbines. Eco2’s responsibility for this asset includes Operational Controller, interface with the Port Authority, SGRE and HV contractor.
