 England headquartered ABS Group Ltd., a subsidiary of ABS Group of Companies, Inc., said it has received a contract to provide project certification services to DONG Energy Wind Power A/S for the planned Borkum Riffgrund 2 (BKR02), one of the largest offshore wind farms in German waters.

 
Developed by DONG Energy, the BKR02 Project is expected to be fully commissioned in the first half of 2019 with a capacity of 450MW. The wind farm will be located in the German Bight area approximately 60 km north of Eemshaven.
 
ABS Group's certification scope will cover project quality management and document review, as well as manufacturing inspection of the offshore substations (OSS), which includes the topsides and foundations. Inspections will be carried out in several European countries.
 
“After being awarded the project certification scope of work for the Hornsea One Offshore Wind Farm Project in the U.K., we are proud to support DONG Energy on another major European offshore wind farm project, and one that strengthens our footprint in the German offshore wind business,” said Torsten Muuss, Director of Renewable Energy for ABS Group. “This second award within two months is a testament to the confidence ABS Group provides our clients as a trusted advisor. We look forward to helping DONG Energy meet the required project certification scope as set forth by the German authority, BSH (Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany).”
