Sgurr Energy – the renewable energy subsidiary of the Wood Group oil services congomerate – has won a three year asset management contract for a Scottish wind farm to brings its management portfolio to over 150-MW of operational assets.
The 51.7MW wind farm at Harburnhead in West Lothian will be commissioned this summer, and operations and maintenance will commence shortly after.
Sgurr Energy’s operations and maintenance team will provide round the clock monitoring, control and grid point services via their 24/7 control centre, ensuring that project performance is continually observed with an expert team ready to respond within the deadlines required for National Grid requests.
Dr Wayne Cranstone, Director at LDV Harburnhead Ltd., said: “It is important for an asset of this size to be proactively managed to maximise energy production and I am sure Sgurr Energy will be fully focused on this objective.”
The 22 turbine wind farm near West Calder is expected to generate over £3 million for the local economy and create a number of jobs during its construction and operational life.
