RES, the world’s largest independent renewable energy company, has been crowned the fastest growing solar O&M provider in the UK, by a report published by Wood Mackenzie*. The report, Global Solar PV O&M Service Provider Dynamics, shows RES has more than doubled its solar O&M portfolio in the past year to over 400MW.
RES recently announced two new agreements with NextEnergy Captial to provide solar O&M services for Hawkers, an 11.9 MW solar site located in Somerset and 8.2MW Ballygarvey in Northern Ireland. Last year RES also opened a new O&M site in Exeter. The new 2000 sq ft facility enables enhanced spare parts management for all RES’ clients as well as office facilities for the team locally.
Simon Deacon, Operations and Maintenance Director at RES, said: “We’ve experienced exceptional growth in the past year and we’re increasing the headcount of our team to match this demand. Our O&M approach is all about caring for the assets we look after. By monitoring, planning and proactively taking action when required we ensure that we maximise the operational efficiency of projects in our care.
“I would like to personally congratulate the team for their efforts throughout the past year, particularly given the exceptional circumstances created by Covid, and look forward to further growth in the year ahead.”
