Anesco Expands Into Northern Ireland With Three O&M Contracts

Anesco has won three new operations and maintenance (O&M) contracts, expanding its operations into Northern Ireland.

It is building on its existing relationship with the Foresight Group with the first contract, which will see it provide O&M services to a 15MW ground mount solar asset in Country Armagh. In January 2020, Anesco signed additional O&M contracts with Foresight, at the time bringing the total number of sites managed for the company to 24.

“Working with an O&M team that reacts quickly and helps manage our assets in a way that optimises their performance, is very important to us,” said Steven Hughes, director of portfolio, Foresight Group. “We have a great relationship with Anesco and it’s a pleasure to be building on that with the addition of this latest site in Northern Ireland.” 

The second contract has been awarded by Downing LLP following a competitive tender for a 10MW rooftop solar portfolio. This is made up of three large commercial rooftop solar schemes as well as 1,300 domestic installations.

The new contacts bring the capacity managed by Anesco’s O&M team to almost 1.2GW of solar and battery assets across the UK. It is planning to expand this further across Northern Europe this year the company said, including work on a portfolio of solar farms it has developed for Shell in the Netherlands.

Matt Harvey, Anesco's director of O&M, said the company was “delighted” to be working with solar developers, adding that with more assets coming on board over summer “we now have a well-established platform in the Irish market".
