RES’ asset management portfolio continues to expand, after signing a new deal with Red Rock Power to bring on board the Afton wind farm in East Ayrshire.
This brings the total capacity of its asset management services in the UK and Ireland to 1.3GW.
Located just south of New Cumnock, the 50MW, 25-turbine wind farm provides 35,000 homes with renewable energy, generating 3.5 million MWh over its lifetime.
As well as site management, via its 24/7/365 Control Centre in Glasgow, RES will provide custom grid services for the wind farm, collaborating with National Grid to monitor real-time output from the project.
“We are committed to providing everyone with affordable clean energy, so we are especially pleased to sign this deal with Red Rock Power to manage day-to-day operations at Afton. It is a real testament to the efforts of our team who continue to provide outstanding work for our clients despite the challenges that we are all facing. We look forward to working together with Red Rock to maximise the wind farm’s potential and support the company as it continues to expand its portfolio.”Darren Cook, asset manager Director at RES.
“Working with a very capable and reliable strategic partner to support our asset management team was a key priority. As we continue to expand our portfolio and move into new markets, we expect our partners to match our ambitions and deliver expertise that aligns with our ‘value-based’ asset management strategy. RES brings extensive experience and proven capabilities that complements our asset management, and we look forward to working with the team to maximise the Afton wind farm’s efficiency and outputs.“Mathieu Meijer, head of asset management, at Red Rock Power.
