RES has signed a five-year framework agreement with Statkraft to provide engineering and project management support to its portfolio of projects.

The scope of the partnership covers project management, package management, engineering, engineering management and technical input.  The focus is on current UK projects, with the possibility of extending to span a European brief too.

RES will provide this support as part of integrated project teams working alongside Statkraft personnel.

Statkraft has joint-ownership in a number of projects, including Triton Knoll, which it recently acquired a stake in.

Andy Beetham, Commercial Manager, RES Offshore commented on the partnership:

“We are well matched in terms of culture and we hope this develops in to a long term partnership.  A particular focus for the partnership will be to reduce the cost of energy produced by Statkraft’s portfolio”

 The agreement is similar to partnerships RES has with other leading Round 3 developers. RES aims to continue forging these partnerships, helping clients looking to bolster their existing capabilities.
