SENERGY, the Aberdeen-based energy service business, has officially opened its new Edinburgh office, with the honours carried out by First Minister Alex Salmond.
Company co-founder and chief executive James McCallum outlined Senergy’s plans to lead Scotland’s energy revolution.
He said yesterday: “Senergy is challenging convention. We have focused on developing techniques and products that help our clients achieve reduced lifting costs per barrel produced.
“Now we are focused on driving the same type of initiatives to bring forward alternative energy projects.
“Alternative energy currently accounts for 3% of our £70million turnover. Our aim is to double turnover in the next three years and by 2013, we expect almost 40% of total revenues generated from the alternative energy sector.”
The Edinburgh office is a base for Senergy’s specialist client training division, and will also give the company access to Scotland’s renewable-energy decision makers, including Scottish Government and the financial and academic communities.
Mr Salmond said: “Senergy is a company which encapsulates many of Scotland’s key strengths: our exceptional renewable resources, our internationally recognised skills and research, and our highly experienced oil and gas industry.
“Scotland is well placed to lead Europe on the development of carbon capture and storage, with the northern North Sea Europe’s largest potential carbon store.”
