Renewable energy specialists Urban Wind have acquired leading UK wind technology expert Myriad Wind in a deal which creates a major new power in the sector.


The deal means the experienced team at Myriad Wind will become part of the expanded Glasgow based Urban Wind company, providing complete, single-source sustainable wind technology solutions across the UK.

Myriad Wind has been acquired, for an undisclosed sum. The new Urban Wind North West Division will continue to be based in Preston, Lancashire.

Alan Penman, CEO, said the acquisition is a key part of Urban Wind's expansion plans in the wind turbine sector, as it steps up its growth strategy in the renewable energy market.

Myriad Wind brings its massive experience and knowledge to the new company, with more than 500 successful wind turbine projects under its belt, which will be invaluable in delivering the Urban Wind pipeline.

Stephen Bradley, Business Development Partner, said: "We are delighted with this acquisition and the huge potential that it brings to us.

"It is the coming together of two strong organisations – both with the same core values of delivery, quality and commitment.

"The expertise and knowledge Myriad Wind brings to us is fantastic and it will allow us to develop and grow in the wind turbine sector across all parts of the UK. We are very excited by the future this deal will deliver for the company and our workforce.

"Myriad Wind was one of the original renewable energy pioneers. It has vast knowledge of the planning process, a strong working relationship with major industry brands, such as Northern Power Systems, as well as its renowned project management expertise and proven delivery ethos.

"This deal brings together the combined strengths of Urban Wind, with its funding expertise and turn-key approach to sustainable wind technology solutions, and Myriad Wind to create an unparalleled proposition for the wind turbine market.

"It gives us an unrivalled platform to expand further in the sector.

"We deliver because at every stage of a project our expertise shines – from planning and surveying through to feasibility studies, sourcing financing and on to turbine options, successful construction and aftercare.

"Our newly-combined strengths mean Urban Wind can now offer a highly-experienced team, who have implemented more than 500 installations across the UK.

Former Myriad Wind managing director Phil McVan is the new MD of Urban Wind. He is also excited for the future and the potential for growth the new organisation can deliver.

He said: "This move has created a powerful, committed specialist team that will lead the way in all aspects of sustainable wind technology.

"It enables Urban Wind to offer a complete, one-source management approach to projects, whatever the environment. Our team of experienced UK renewable energy experts can give the complete package to make sustainable wind technology work for clients.

"As wind technologies develop, options, experience and expertise are critical to creating sustainable solutions – and that is what Urban Wind can deliver.

"We deliver value, knowledge and a complete management approach to make client's sustainable wind project a success – whether it's in a rural or urban environment, a community venture or a corporate project."
