Renewables move ‘a natural extension’ to Wood offering
INTERNATIONAL energy service company Wood Group has started a big push into the renewable-energy sector.

INTERNATIONAL energy service company Wood Group has started a big push into the renewable-energy sector.

The company sees major opportunities in the rapidly growing sector around the world.

The Aberdeen firm’s gas-turbine service division has launched a new unit – Wood Group Renewable Energy Services (WGRES) which will focus on the wind-turbine market. Wood said this new operation was a natural extension of services to its core markets.

WGRES has opened offices in Houston and Aberdeen to serve the global market.

Its president, Mitch Robinson, said: “WGRES is able to provide windfarm owners and developers with a customised solution to their service needs.”

Meanwhile, Wood subsidiary JP Kenny has announced the appointment of Tim O’Sullivan as operations director of its newly formed offshore renewables division.

Steve Wayman, chief executive of JP Kenny, said: “Many billions of pounds will be invested in wind, wave and tidal-energy projects over the next 10 years and JP Kenny, along with other Wood Group companies, will seek to apply the expertise and capability to support and optimise renewable projects that we have used to serve oil and gas projects for 30 years.”

Mr O’Sullivan previously led MCS, an advanced subsea-technology company owned by Wood, in Aberdeen. He said: “I am really excited about the opportunities in the renewables sector and know that JP Kenny can offer the market a unique combination of skills and experience.”

Wood employs 28,000 people worldwide and operates in 46 countries.

It has three divisions: engineering and production facilities, well support, and gas-turbine services.
