image The move into Germany is an important one for SgurrEnergy due to the increasing number of German offshore wind energy projects

Leading renewable engineering consultancy, SgurrEnergy, part of Wood Group, has this week announced the opening of a new international office in Hafencity in Hamburg, Germany, bringing its total number of global offices to 10.

With headquarters in Glasgow, Scotland, these recent developments see SgurrEnergy’s reach within the renewables industry extend further into Europe.

The move into Germany follows SgurrEnergy’s 2012 expansion which saw the company open two new offices in Stavanger, Norway and São Paulo, Brazil.

The company has come a long way since starting out 10 years ago in a small office in Glasgow, Scotland, and is enjoying rapid growth within the renewable energy industry, now employing over 180 staff internationally. SgurrEnergy’s portfolio includes over 85,000MW of project experience in renewable energy, completed around the world in more than 50 countries, over six continents.

The opening of the German office is part of the company’s ambitious expansion plans announced last year that aim to double the international workforce over three years.

The German office will see the employment of three new staff members, all with extensive technical experience within the field of renewable energy.

and the consequent requirement for engineering firms with strong experience in international renewable energy work. German developers and finance banks are among the top players in the international renewables market and with more than 30GW of installed wind power and more than 22000 wind turbines, Germany also has high potential for operation and maintenance services. Germany’s location is also well placed for further potential expansion to east and southeast Europe.

SgurrEnergy’s advisory services director, Simon Luby, said: “We’re already a strong player in offshore wind due diligence in Germany; the move will help us consolidate this position, through a local presence for our valued German clients, and provide a focal point for introducing our many other areas of expertise to the German renewable energy industry. The focus will be on our ability to de-risk and safely deliver renewable energy projects and then manage and optimise their performance once operation commences.

SgurrEnergy’s German office manager, Matthias Henke, said: “Through opening an office in Hamburg, SgurrEnergy has positioned itself at the hub of offshore and onshore wind energy in Germany. With close links to projects, developers, contractors and banks, we are looking forward to delivering SgurrEnergy standard project support from the new Hamburg office.”

Poll: Wind Energy Mix
Gas, oil and coal are limited resources, whilst the use of wind power constitutes an alternative. Do you believe that the share of wind power in the energy mix is already sufficient?
