Amec blows into wind power field


AMEC has made its first foray into the wind power market with the acquisition of leading wind energy developer.

Border Wind, which was responsible for the UK's first offshore wind farm on the pier at Blyth, in Northumberland, will become part of Amec's offshore services business. Border Wind is building three onshore wind farms in the North-East.

Amec offshore services managing director Neil Bruce said: 'Amec is one of the first oil and gas providers to expand into wind energy and this allows us to respond positively to the government's commitment to develop wind energy projects.'

Mr Bruce said the acquisition was the first step in the group's long- term strategy in the alternative energy market. He said Amec was aiming to become Europe's leading wind energy service provider.
