CAN Renewables has already started working towards attaining approved installer and servicing contractor status with a UK manufacturer of small turbines, and utilising Windtechs’ engineering skill set in this venture will enhance RSK’s ability to provide a whole turbine installation and care service.

RSK founder and Chief Executive Officer Alan Ryder said: "Windtechs is a great addition to the RSK family, further enhancing our offer in the renewables sector. It is essential that we expedite the move to greener energies, bringing new projects to fruition but also getting maximum return from the projects already established.

"Windtechs is very well equipped to help extend the life of existing wind farms and, with its engineering skill set, enhances our ability to provide a turnkey turbine installation and care service to our clients."

Windtechs Managing Director Seth Jones said the wind industry has grown and evolved over the last ten years at a "fantastic rate".
