  5. 5. Project GeminiProject characteristics pending• Project Gemini consists of 2 X 300 MW permitted offshore wind farms in the Netherlands• Project Gemini is located at one of the best offshore wind locations in NL with average wind speeds of 10 m/s (confirmed by a.o. Garrad Hassan) Estimated annual production for 600MW: 2,300 GWh• Buitengaats (300MW) and ZeeEnergie (300MW) have both an approved permit (“Wbr”) and a feed-in tariff (‘SDE”) granted by the Dutch government• The awarded SDE totals a max. subsidy of €4.4 billion  guaranteed income over a period of 15 years• Project Gemini’s revenues consists of a combination of (1) the Wholesale electricity sales under the PPA, plus (2) the Subsidy income, together resulting in an annual fixed revenue stream• Electricity for 650,000+ Dutch households per annum which equals a reduction in emissions of 1,250,000 Ton CO₂• Project Gemini will most likely be the only large Dutch offshore wind project for the foreseeable future• Geophysical study by Fugro confirmed excellent soil conditions• On shore grid connection owned by Tennet in Eemshaven close to land fall 5® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore

  7. 7. History Project Gemini • Project Gemini was originally developed by BARD Energy Emden (BARD). BARD had applied for 3 permits to build offshore wind farms in the North East of The Netherlands, adjacent to the border with Germany. pending • The location was specifically chosen for the excellent prevailing wind conditions and the synergies achievable with BARD’s other intended locations in the German Bight. The three wind farms were granted permits late 2009. • At that stage, a total of 12 offshore wind projects, held by 6 sponsors (Eneco, Nuon, RWE, Airtricity, Bard, E- connection), had been permitted in The Netherlands • In December 2010, the Dutch government opened the offshore wind subsidy tender (SDE), under which all permitted projects were given the opportunity to submit bids for the EUR 5.3 billion SDE subsidy budget. • Typhoon Offshore (Typhoon) helped BARD in submitting bids for all three projects (Buitengaats, ZeeEnergie and Clearcamp), in return for an equity stakes in the projects if the bid was successful. • In May 2010, the Dutch government announced that two projects (Buitengaats and ZeeEnergie, or Project Gemini)) were granted the full SDE (300MW each), in total EUR 4.4 billion. The remainder of the SDE budget (approx EUR 900m) is yet to be allocated. • In the mean time, the new Dutch government has moved its renewable energy priorities away from offshore wind. As a result, it is unlikely that there will be any other significant offshore wind project in The Netherlands in the years to come. Project Gemini is therefore generally viewed as a landmark project in the Dutch renewable energy arena. 7® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore
  8. 8. History Project Gemini (Continued) • From May 2010 to date, Typhoon and BARD further developed Project Gemini. One of the challenges is to combine the grid connection for the two subsidized wind farms. • In March 2011, HVC committed itself to participate as equity partner in Project Gemini. • In August 2011, Typhoon Offshore and HVC obtained full ownership of Project Gemini from BARD. Project Gemini is now owned by Typhoon Offshore (85%) and HVC (15%). • Typhoon is now solely responsible for the further development, structuring and financing of Project Gemini. • Other parties have shown strong interest to participate (equity) in Project Gemini or to provide financing (mezzanine + senior debt) 8® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore

  10. 10. Structure Project Gemini Wind farms Organisational structure Project Gemini • All assets related to the Project are held in 2 limited partnerships Buitengaats ZeeEnergie organised and existing under Dutch law: ZeeEnergie and Buitengaats (the PowerCo SPCs) • In addition to the PowerCo, a separately owned Dutch legal entity (GridCo) will own, maintain and operate the offshore transformer station(s), export cabling and all other grid related assets, except for the infield cabling. The PowerCo will pay an arm’s length transportation fee under a fixed 25-year contract to GridCo • GridCo will be owned and financed by different parties from those of the PowerCo, due to the different (specialised) nature of the asset (and its investors) • The figure illustrates the layout of the total park (Wind farms + Grid) Grid GridCo Off-shore On-shore ~ ~ ~ ~ 10® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore

  13. 13. Two Contract Strategy ‘Two party contracting strategy’: • (1) one marine contractor and (2) one turbine supplier Each contractor will have its own responsibilities  • agreements with an interface on the flange Prinses Amalia and Belwind wind farms have used a • similar contracting strategy which since then is considered ‘market standard’ 13® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore

  16. 16. Sponsors: Typhoon OffshoreTyphoon Offshore Typhoon Offshore was founded in 2009 by Dirk Berkhout and Dennis Lange, who started working together in 2004 and since then established a joint track record in relevant business areas, combining ‘green’ capital and industry leading knowhow to achieve superior returns both financially and in terms of contribution to the environment. The founders view the renewable energy market as immature, lacking experience and execution power. Typhoon Offshore expects to create value by capitalizing on current market conditions, through its: • Long term commitment to renewable energy sector • Strong sourcing and execution capacity • Relevant joint track record of 40+ yearsTyphoon Offshore team The team developed, financed and/or commissioned over 20 renewable energy infrastructure projects with a total capacity in excess of 1GW and a transaction value of around EUR 2 billion The team’s complementary backgrounds and experience provide a strong platform for investment performance, mainly due to its deep sector experience and understanding of the risks and pricing of the target assets, as well as: • Strong transaction execution skills • Technical expertise • M&A and financing expertise • Project management experience • Structuring capabilities • Financial control experience Main track record team Offshore Wind Prinses Amaliawindpark (NL) offshore 120 MW Belwind (Belgium) Offshore-first tranche 165 MW Scira/Sheringham Shoal (UK) Offshore- full consent 315 MW 16® All rights reserved Typhoon Offshore
