For the sixth year in a row, the company – which operates in Scotland from a base in Edinburgh – has been successful in the wholesale category for its business activities in the UK.
Since 2010, the market and opinion research institute EuPD Research has made annual awards the “TOP PV supplier” seal in the following categories; modules, inverters, storage technology and wholesale -reflecting the current mood of the surveyed installers.
Meanwhile, BayWa r.e. has also acquired the stand-alone operations and maintenance service business that was previously part of the Green Hedge group of companies.
Green Hedge Operational Services Limited is one of the most experienced independent PV O&M companies in the UK, covering solar PV operations management and maintenance.
As a result, BayWa r.e. now manages solar and wind power plants with a total capacity of around 620MW across Great Britain.
The acquisition also includes 13 employees, all of whom transfer to BayWa r.e.’s existing UK service team comprising engineers, technicians and asset managers.
Matthias Taft, Board Member of BayWa AG, responsible for the energy business, commented: “With the rapid expansion of renewables over the last decade, the technical and commercial operations management segment is becoming increasingly important as investors need reliable partners to take care of their operational projects.”
