Greensolver Merges with PLY Energy

Greensolver, the independent wind and solar farm asset manager, has merged with Dutch based developer and asset manager, PLY Energy.

Under the terms of the agreement, PLY Energy will join the Greensolver brand to deploy joint services that include procurement and contracting, due diligence, construction and asset management.

Greensolver Chief Executive Guy Auger will continue to lead the strategy for the growing business, with Gerben Smit appointed as General Manager and Financial Director, Greensolver. PLY Energy’s Alexander Harssema will become General Manager for the UK and the Netherlands. Paris will continue to be the company headquarters, with offices in London and Groningen and a combined head count of 30.

The official operational roll out will commence in January 2016.

“Whilst the fortunes of the main European onshore wind and solar markets have been mixed in recent years, the fact remains that there is a mature asset base of operational onshore renewable energy in Northern Europe. The UK presents a clear opportunity for joint asset management services, and we’re seeing plenty of future growth potential for wind and solar in the Netherlands,” said Guy Auger, Chief Executive, Greensolver.

Greensolver has carried out several offshore wind consultancy projects recently and are targeting this sector as a priority for the future.
