Statkraft acquires Airvolution Clean Energy, highlighting focus on wind and solar

Statkraft has acquired UK onshore wind developer Airvolution Clean Energy Ltd, in alignment with its ambitions to deploy 600MW of onshore wind and solar generation in the UK by 2025.

Published on 21 August, it builds on Statkraft’s collaboration with Airvolution since 2017 in exploring onshore wind opportunities in Scotland and builds on the company’s presence in the UK, following its acquisition of Element Power UK and its Ireland activities in late 2018.

Airvolution’s Glasgow office will be retained by Statkraft and is set to double in size with new recruits starting in September.
