Glasgow-based renewable consultancy Sgurr Energy has won a contract to manage two solar power farm sites in England.

The Wood Group subsidiary will undertake the technical asset management over an initial three year period at the Islip and Springhill solar PV projects, owned by the DIF Infrastructure III fund.   The two 5MW plants are located in Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire respectively.

Each of these two solar power farms is connected to the UK electrical grid and has approximately 20,000 solar panels installed across areas of land – equivalent to the size of around 12 football pitches

Services will include operational monitoring and reporting, management of the O&M contractor, with regular site inspections to be conducted by Sgurr Energy’s local site manager.
