Pondera Consult supervises tender Nieuwleusen wind farm

In July 2019, Pondera drew up the tender documentation for Westenwind 1 B.V. for the design, construction and maintenance of two wind turbines in the vicinity of Nieuwleusen, The Netherlands. The two wind turbines have a combined maximum installed capacity of 9 MW. The project is another positive step towards the Province of Overijssel’s goal in achieving 85.5 MW of installed wind energy by 2021.

Invitation to Tender

Pondera has announced an “Invitation to Tender” asking market parties to make an offer for the design, realization and maintenance of the wind farm. A distinction is made between the actual wind turbines, the crane stands, access roads, cabling and the transformer station. A special and challenging aspect is that both contract terms of the UAV-gc 2005 and Fidic Yellow are used. The offers will be assessed on both quality and price. The best market parties are expected to be selected for the wind farm before the end of the year. Once the wind turbines have been installed, Pondera will also take on contract management to ensure that everything proceeds according to the agreements made.

Pondera’s services

The support of tenders is a new service that Pondera has been offering to various customers for the past two years. Pondera can also assists in contracting, construction supervision, mediating and concluding PPAs (power contracts) and contract management of sustainable energy projects.

Pondera to attend Vietnam’s Offshore Roundtable

During Vietnam’s Offshore Wind Roundtable on November 22nd, Eric Arends, director of Pondera Consult, will discuss the potential and outlook for the offshore wind industry in Vietnam and the potential for local and regional offshore companies and investors to participate in this future market. This event will bring together senior executives from the offshore wind industry in Asia.

The wind energy potential in Vietnam is very high and preparations to develop certain areas for wind energy are in progress. The Netherlands is a front runner in the field of wind energy with Dutch companies contributing to the majority of offshore and nearshore wind farms throughout the world. In the Netherlands, parties are looking with great interest at the renewable energy policy plans and wind energy development in Vietnam. In 2017, Pondera Consult was asked by the Dutch government (Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO) to carry out a study on the opportunities to contribute to wind energy development in Vietnam.
