2020 is proving to be a standout year for Anesco’s operations and maintenance team, with the service successfully entering new markets and a record number of assets now under management.
And according to Matt Harvey, Anesco O&M director, more is yet to come.
Matt explains: “At Anesco, we are committed to supporting our customers to achieve the greatest potential return from their assets, using the latest technology and methods of best practice to enhance asset performance.
“Our O&M service has grown substantially in recent months, with both new customers joining us and existing customers expanding their contracts. We onboarded 100MW of new assets within one four-week period and the division has also achieved continuous monthly turnover in excess of £1million during these testing times.”
Matt continued: “I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved to date and thank the whole team for all their efforts – but this is just the start! We will be building on these foundations even further in the coming months, with an additional 145MW of assets expected to onboard by the end of the financial year and a strong pipeline already lined up for Q1 2021.”
Highlights of 2020 include
Exceeding 1.1GW of renewable assets under management
Following the addition of several new contracts for both new and existing customers, including rooftop and ground mount solar installations, the number of renewable assets under management by Anesco’s O&M team now exceeds 24,000, with a combined capacity of more than 1.1GW.
First O&M contracts secured outside GB
In a landmark achievement for the company, Anesco has broken ground on its first projects outside of the UK – developing two solar farms for Shell in the Netherlands. Both sites will be under the care of Anesco’s O&M team.
Anesco has also grown its customer base in Northern Ireland, with new solar assets being onboarded including commercial rooftop schemes, residential installations and solar farms.
First third-party battery assets under management
Having monitored and maintained solar assets for almost a decade, Anesco’s O&M team is now making a name for itself within the energy storage market too. Having previously looked after Anesco’s own portfolio of storage assets, the team took on its first third party storage contracts earlier this year, beginning with three battery installations with a combined capacity of 25MW.
