RES has constructed a substantial portfolio of wind farms - numbering more than 60 to date - the majority as turnkey projects. This represents over 4GW of installed capacity. More than 1,000MW is currently under construction around the world.
Recent projects include onshore wind farms in France, the USA, Sweden and Scotland. RES is currently involved in the construction of offshore wind energy off the coast of Lincolnshire in the UK. Our offshore team has supported the delivery of onshore and offshore works for Lynn and Inner Dowsing (194MW) for the owner Centrica and has developed and is providing engineering and construction support for the larger Lincs offshore wind farm nearby.
Our construction team builds projects on behalf of other developers as well as for RES. The turnkey approach ensures a cost-effective and efficient service with just one point of contact between the client and contractor. We have helped to establish industry standards by completing our wind farms on short construction timetables, on time and within budget.
The construction of a wind farm typically takes between 6 and 12 months. It is RES's policy to use local contractors, for example for civil engineering works, wherever possible.
