The project

Vercity delivers the management service agreement (MSA) for HoldCo’s renewable energy project. The project is in the operational phase, having already assisted the investors in signing the agreement and reaching financial close. Walney is the world´s biggest offshore wind farm and Vercity is focused on ensuring the facilities management (FM) providers meet all contract compliance obligations.

Approach

In providing financial management and company secretarial services to the project, HoldCo benefits from the UK’s Contract for Differences (CfD) subsidy mechanism. Vercity adds value to the project through habitat management and cultivating effective processes that drive performance. We resolve power quality issues to ensure grid compliance and develop sustainable financial models.
