BayWa r.e. has secured the contract for the operations and maintenance of 13 UK solar farms on behalf of Octopus Investments.
After having successfully taken over the technical and commercial asset management of four of its UK wind farms in May 2018 with 148.5 MW BayWa r.e. will provide the complete scope of O&M services for a total output of 61.1 MW.
Ian Draisey, Managing Director, BayWa r.e. Operation Services Limited, commented, Adding these solar farms to our portfolio comes at an exciting time in our expansion across the UK. We have developed a great working relationship with Octopus over the last years while looking after the technical and commercial asset management of some of its wind farms, and to be entrusted with the O&M on so many of its solar farms is indicative of the strength of our partnership.
Now with three locations across the UK and growing staff numbers in Edinburgh, Sterling and Milton Keynes, BayWa r.e has grown its serviced portfolio to over 1.9 GW of utility-scale projects.
The scope to be performed on the Octopus PV sites will include all electrical and non-electrical tasks required for plant management and performance optimisation of the solar farms, capitalising on BayWa r.e.s extensive technical expertise, systems, and processes.
