Energy expansion

SgurrEnergy has opened an office in Scrabster Harbour, Scotland, as part of an expansion drive that will create several skilled jobs in the area over the next 18 months. The Glasgow-based renewable-energy consultancy said that the branch will focus on providing full project lifecycle services for wind, biomass, wave and tidal energy systems.

SgurrEnergy was recently awarded a contract to assess the economic viability of constructing offshore wind farms along a stretch of Chinese coastline from Fujian to Shandong. The project is due for completion in August 2009.
