Vancouver, British Columbia-based NaiKun Wind Energy Group Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, NaiKun Wind Development Inc., has expanded its engineering team by adding Offshore Design Engineering Ltd. (ODE), offshore wind project engineering consultants based in London.

ODE joins Sandwell Engineering Inc. in providing engineering and project management services for the NaiKun wind energy project in Hecate Strait.

ODE will assist the NaiKun team with its operations planning and brings considerable experience in offshore wind projects in Europe, from the planning phase through to construction and operation. Specifically, ODE will provide project management services supporting the preliminary design phase of the project, including the preparation of detailed cost and schedule estimates, as well as logistics and construction planning.

Sandwell has assisted NaiKun with transmission and interconnection reports, the design and installation of a marine meteorological station in Hecate Strait and studies to determine site conditions at the project location. Sandwell brings local expertise, as well as extensive offshore design and construction experience. Sandwell will continue to provide engineering services supporting the preliminary design phase of the project.

"NaiKun is extremely pleased to have both ODE and Sandwell as members of our project team," says Paul Taylor, NaiKun's President and CEO. "Together, they will provide an extremely strong engineering team that is experienced in both offshore wind projects and West Coast marine environments. We view this collaboration as a very important step in bringing the first phase of our project to fruition."
