Nuon Renewables joins forces with Vattenfall in the UK

One of the UK’s largest onshore wind farm developers. was created this week with the uniting of Nuon Renewables and Vattenfall’s onshore wind power interests.

The new business will take the Vattenfall name and operate from offices in Penzance, Swansea, Hexham and Edinburgh.

The combined development portfolio with 14 projects in England, Wales and Scotland totalling more than 624 MW puts Vattenfall amongst the largest players in onshore wind power development in the UK.

In 2009 Nuon Renewables was acquired by Vattenfall when the Swedish firm bought Dutch utility Nuon. Until now Nuon Renewables in the UK has operated independently of its parent company.

Vattenfall’s new Head of Onshore Wind Development in the UK is to be Piers Guy, the former Head of Development at Nuon Renewables.

He said: “This larger Vattenfall onshore wind business in the UK is now very substantial and with the support of the UK and devolved Governments could invest nearly £1billion by 2020 and make a telling contribution to meeting green energy targets and creating jobs.”
