RENEWABLE ENERGY SECTOR The renewable energy industry is an area of growing interest throughout the GAC Group, worldwide. Colleagues throughout the world are following the activities of GAC UK in the sector, with a mind to applying the valuable lessons learned as renewable energy operations develop in their own areas.


While wind farms are popping up in new areas across North West Europe and the Americas, the market is maturing and the number of companies involved in the construction and maintenance is relatively small, compared to other traditional shipping and marine sectors.


Says Mollet: “It is essential to understand the customers’ strategy and growth. GAC has built its own global network by matching the needs of our customers and positioning ourselves where we believe they will need our assistance and expertise.”


TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE Today, the drive to develop renewable energy sources is the focus for many governments and authorities. Developed, wealthy nations which have the means to buy and refine crude oil or import coal are instead choosing to lead the way with alternative technology and experimental scientific theory.


The benefit of wind and wave technology is, for some, yet to be proven. Public opinion is a major concern and where large wind turbines should be located is the source of great debate.


Some projects have failed to be sanctioned because of the wishes of local residents to proposed sites. And yet, a map of the UK shows a significant – and rapidly expanding – number of sites. Wind farms are here to stay and the customer base is growing!
