International award to Zephyr and Tellenes windfarm
Olav Rommetveit with the IJ Global Award for best onshore windproject in Europe 2016.
Tellenes windfarm in Rogaland in Norway was voted best onshore windproject in in Europe in 2016 by Infrastructure Journal Global.
Zephyr CEO Olav Rometveit received the award during an event and a gala dinner hosted by the newscorporation in Guildhall in London recently. Zephyr shared the spotlight with their businesspartners in this project, including BlackRock and Google. Google has agreed to purchase the energy from the windfarm for the next 12 years.
The windfarm in Tellenes will be the largest in Norway when it begins operation in september, with an estimated annual production that equals the consumption of 28.000 single homes.
– IJ Global monitors closely all larger M&A’s and infrastructure projects, and this is an award that is closely linked with the complexity of the project and how the project is set up and organized from a fnancial point of view. How it is set up with regards to investors, how we have managed to connect the right Suppliers and so on is a big reason for why this award was given to this project, Rommetveit says.
– For us in Zephyr, which is a development company in this sector, the award is very much appreciated. It is a nice aknowledgment of the hard work we have put in for several years. It shows that we have a good knowhow of how to facilitate wind farm projects for the international investor market, he adds.
