The location of renewable energy sources is often a barrier to harvesting their full potential.
Through engineering excellence we have delivered access and piling solutions that form a key part of plans to harvest some of the UK’s most remote renewable energy sources.
Through our project financing capability, we have a strong presence in the offshore transmission market, investing equity in offshore transmission projects (OFTO) by Ofgem. These connections from part of a major programme of offshore wind generation supporting the UK’s Renewable Energy Directive,which dictates that 15% of the UK’s total energy must come from renewable sources by 2020. Offshore wind is expected to make a significant contribution to meeting this target.
Our works in this area, often in challenging weather conditions, mean that our workforce is trained to cope with the extremes of UK weather.
