SgurrEnergy has boosted its presence in the Americas by opening an office in Mexico City. This latest venture provides a base for SgurrEnergy, a Wood Group company, to strategically support the development of renewable energy in Mexico and surrounding countries. The office is headed up by David Barrie, the company’s business development coordinator.
Already active in Mexico, SgurrEnergy has worked on wind projects across the country, including energy yield prediction and wind feasibility and operational management of wind projects.
Mexico has ambitious renewables targets, aiming to add 20 GW of renewable energy by 2030 and generate 35 percent of the country’s energy from clean resources by 2024.
These targets have been backed up by legislation to open up the electricity market with further development of renewables, and there are plans for extensive grid infrastructure improvements in the country to cope with this energy growth.
“The opening of the Mexican office comes just a few months after we announced our expansion into Chile, representing healthy growth for SgurrEnergy and a strong presence in South and Central America,” said Molly Iliffe, SgurrEnergy’s international office manager. “With on-the-ground specialists in the region, we are looking forward to effectively supporting our clients toward their renewable energy goals.”
According to Barrie, there is a huge amount of potential for renewable energy solutions in Mexico.
“With ambitious energy targets in place, this paves the way for significant growth and market development,” Barrie said. “I’m looking forward to driving SgurrEnergy’s presence in the region.”
With nine locations across North and South America, SgurrEnergy is working extensively across both continents, utilizing the expertise and capabilities of its 250 employees in 17 locations.
