Realise acquires Northern Ireland O&M division of Optinergy Ltd

PERTH-based Realise Energy Services has completed the acquisition of Optinergy Ltd, the Northern Ireland medium wind turbine operation and maintenance arm of Optinergy Ltd (ROI), a technical services provider.

Supporting customers with remote monitoring, scheduled and unscheduled operation and maintenance services, as well as other elements of turbine supply, optimisation and asset management, Realise Energy Services is part of the Randolph Renewables Group.

This acquisition of Optinergy (NI) from parent company Optinergy Ltd (ROI), has been tipped to ‘further consolidate and strengthen’ Realise’s offering of wind turbine services in Northern Ireland and across the rest of the UK.

Optinergy (NI) will be rebranded as Realise Optinergy NI. Optinergy Ltd (ROI), which is not part of the acquisition and deals with the larger scale windfarm sector, will continue to trade as normal in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Sheridan Jenkins, MD of Realise Energy Services, said, “We, at Realise Energy Services, pride ourselves on the quality of both our engineering and customer support teams, together with the full service offering we provide our clients. We look forward to continuing this success working in partnership with Optinergy (ROI) and all Optinergy (NI) customers in Northern Ireland. 2021 is an important time for our business as we look to both consolidate our brand and continue our strategic growth. We are very receptive to talking to other companies in the medium wind sector about mutually beneficial opportunities at this time.”

Aiden Watters, MD, Optinergy Ltd (ROI), added, “We are delighted to announce this important sale. The Realise team have developed an excellent business with a very strong focus on customer service. We look forward to working with them to build on our reputation in the Northern Ireland region. Through this purchase, Realise will be able to further enhance their service offering to all our existing clients and expanding customer base, providing a best-in-class service to wind turbine owners.”
