Life cycle of an offshore wind farm project (c) Johannes Dimas
Our experience is covering the full life cycle of an offshore wind farm project

Energy & Project Management is the consultancy office of Johannes Dimas. With our advisory services we support international transactions in the offshore industry as well as the development and the construction of on- and offshore wind farms since the year 2005.

Johannes Dimas himself has been extensively involved in the German offshore wind energy development already since 2000. Since several years we are also engaged in Brazil.

Johannes Dimas has coordinated environmental impact assessments and coauthored approval applications for the first German offshore wind farm projects, e.g. the DanTysk project. As well as this, he has planned and supervised the first drillings for a wind farm development in the Baltic Sea, and was involved in the construction of the first German offshore wind research platform in 2002.

At Vattenfall Europe, he was responsible for the onshore wind energy installations. Commencing in 2005, he designed jointly with the headquarters the Vattenfall Europe's Offshore Strategy. Hence, he paved the way for the successful offshore market entry, associated with several offshore project transactions (e.g. DanTysk, and alpha ventus). In a joint venture with E-on and EWE AG, he led the Vattenfall team of alpha ventus, the first German deep water wind farm, producing since 2009.

Between 2009 and 2011 he gave advice to major international companies of the wind industry from Americas, Asia, and Europe on behalf of Germany's federal government.

In a long line of achievements, he was Project Director of the high-voltage grid connection for the Baltic 1 offshore wind farm, Technical-Commercial Project Coordinator of the Trianel Borkum I, and the Project Director of Trianel Borkum II offshore wind farm. By the end of 2017, Johannes Dimas gave special attention to the business and portfolio development of the offshore division of Trianel GmbH in Hamburg.

Engagement in Brazil

We are engaged in international business and project development. In the course of our engagement on the Brazilian market, we advise public authorities and the industry in Brazil.

We actively promote the sustainable transformation of the energy sector and are partnering with national and international organizations. As part of this commitment, Johannes Dimas held workshops on offshore wind energy for the Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), the National Operator of the Electric System (ONS), the national Energy Research Office (EPE) and other governmental agencies of Brazil. Furthermore he was invited by the federal Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA) as an expert for a hearing on the federal environmental licensing of offshore wind farms in Brazil.

In 2019, Johannes Dimas organized together with the AHK Rio de Janeiro (AHK-RJ) a high-level professional exchange between Germany and Brazil. Next to big players like Petrobras and Mitsui, around 10 medium sized Brazilian companies and research institutes took advantage of the expert trip Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore to Germany.

We are also engaged in the fields of R&D and education. In this field, we collaborated amongst others with the German Association for International Cooperation (GIZ), the AHK Rio de Janeiro (AHK-RJ), the institute COPPE of the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), and the Instituto Superior de Inovação e Tecnologia (ISITEC). Johannes Dimas lectured in 2018 and 2019 for the postgraduate courses European Energy Manager (EUREM) and Gestão de Energias Renováveis (GENRE) in Rio de Janeiro.
