ABERDEEN Renewable Energy Group has attracted another 10 new members in two months.
The private-public partnership, which aims to position Aberdeen city and shire at the global forefront of the renewable energy revolution, now has more than 165 members – up 25% over the last year – spanning the full spectrum of renewable energy expertise.
The new members are AdviSafe Risk Management, Aubin, Enventi, Enviko, Renewable Energy Solutions, HSBC, Langlee Wave Power, Pisys, RPS Energy and SeaHold Geoships.
Richard Smith, business development manager of marine and subsea services contractor Geoships, said: “We are currently in the process of initiating a comprehensive brand building campaign to introduce our approach and services to the offshore renewables market.
“It is hoped that membership of the group will help promote Geoships and raise the profile of the company and capability of Aberdeen-based contractors in the industry.”
Paddy Collins, managing director of Aubin, an independent supplier of specialist chemicals to the energy industry, views the group as an ideal forum for exchanging skills, innovation and technology.
Morag McCorkindale, chief operating officer, said many of the new members had joined following the All-Energy 2011 show, where the group had its biggest ever presence on its pavilion.
She said: “The success of this year’s All-Energy show in May demonstrated Aberdeen city and shire’s renewable energy credentials to a global audience.”
“This is very much reflected in the quality of organisations continuing to recognise the benefits that membership can provide.
“The region is home to a world-class concentration of innovation, knowledge and expertise in the energy industry. It is our principle that by working together we can capitalise on this established skill-set and position the region as a global player in sustainable energy.”
