To date, the BayWa group has installed onshore wind and solar projects in the UK with a total capacity of over 140MW and has an orders pipeline of over 300MW under development.
Donald Wilson, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, formally opened the company’s new office in the capital, where the Baywa team will focus on wind project development and construction, as well as operations management of solar and wind projects.
In addition to the new posts created with the development, Baywa expects to recruit additional staff in the next 12 months as ‘investment opportunities continues to expand’.
Matthias Taft, Chief Executive, Baywa, said, “The opening of the new Edinburgh office is a significant milestone in our UK growth story, which to date has included wind and solar project acquisition, development and construction as well as photovoltaic (PV) component supply and distribution.”
And Katy Hogg, Managing Director, BayWa UK, added, “We look forward to advancing our activities in the UK with our experienced team. Our financial strength, technical experience, long-term focus and flexible approach means that BayWa is the partner of choice for developers and investors in renewable energy.
“We anticipate engaging closely with the Edinburgh business community, and indeed the vibrant Scottish renewable energy sector, as we continue to grow and invest in the UK market.”
