Glasgow-based Sgurr Energy has expanded its Far East operations with the opening of a new office in Hong Kong to exploit new markets in Asia.

Regional Director Cathryn Chu will head up the office in Hong Kong after establishing an office in Peking in 2006 for the Wood Group subsidiary and growing it to a team of 16 staff. 

Sgurr Energy – which is owned by Wood Group, the Aberdeen-based oil and gas conglomerate – is active across Asia, with recent projects including offshore wind energy research for Huaneng Renewables and a contract to support Chinese investment into the EU-bloc on a number of onshore and offshore wind opportunities.

Chu said: “We have been working with investors and banks in Hong Kong for the past 10 years and this presence in Hong Kong will allow us to further explore the renewable energy opportunities in the region, but also provide a base for supporting south-east Asian projects and investments.”
