Belfast-based wind turbine management company, Everun Ltd has acquired Omagh-based O&M provider, The Wind Factory UK.
The Everun Group is a leading provider of on-shore Wind Turbine Management services in Northern Ireland, having successfully developed, supported and managed over 100 wind turbine projects. The acquisition will include taking immediate control of the company’s 25 wind turbine assets, currently under their management. In addition, The Wind Factory UK’s field engineering team will join Everun Operations and provide an enhanced service offering across the province.
“The acquisition is testament to our commitment to the Renewable Energy sector within Northern Ireland and specifically the medium sized on-shore wind market. If Northern Ireland is to achieve the new renewable energy targets of 70% of electricity from renewables by 2030 , it is imperative that we maximise both the lifespan and yield from existing turbine assets.
“Through Everun’s range of services including service & engineering, bespoke monitoring & reporting software and complete Asset Management services, we are able to provide services that can do just that. Last year, our portfolio performed above industry standard, achieving over 98% availability. This was a direct result of our robust 24/7 monitoring software and skilled engineers across the province.
“Growth by acquisition is very much part of our overall business strategy and we look forward to integrating The Wind Factory UK business within the Everun Group and maximising the benefits that can flow for our customers”.Michael Thompson, Managing Director
