Developers, Owners & Operators
UK renewable energy developer EDF Energy Renewables and operations and maintenance business EDF ENS UK have come together under a new brand –EDF Renewables. That's the new name for EDF Group's solar and wind activities in more than 20 non-French speaking countries around the world.... More

EDF Renewables in the UK has 34 wind farms, including 2 offshore wind farms and also a battery storage unit. Its goal is to use expertise and innovation to make low carbon electricity more competitive and effective for consumers.

It also looks after the operations and maintenance of wind farms which helps to increase their production and lifespan.

EDF Renewables has already demonstrated its ability to drive innovation, for example in the Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Project, where float and submerge technology was used in the installation of gravity base foundations, 66 kV cables and 8.3 MW turbines – all firsts in offshore wind.

EDF Renewables is also looking at the future of onshore wind using the most modern and efficient turbines to make this technology increasingly competitive.

The increase in wind and solar power poses new challenges for the grid, that's why EDF Renewables has built the UK's largest battery storage at West Burton B to help balance supply and ensure reliability for customers.

EDF Renewables in the UK remains a joint venture between EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy and is one of the country's leading renewable energy companies which develops, builds and operates generation projects with a focus on onshore and offshore wind as well as battery storage technology. We also look after the operations and maintenance of our wind farms.
Key Participants
GEOSIGHT are a young land and hydrographic survey company with a growing marine client base including James Fisher Marine Services, DEME Group, A2Sea, Wight Shipyards, Hunton Yachts and Fugro amongst others. Specifically our team of IHO Category A qualified hydrographic and land surveyors can provide vessel dimension control and laser scanning services.... More

GEOSIGHT has combined experience of 15 years providing dimension control surveys to define accurate reference frames for vessels with motion reference units, survey heading systems (gyros and GNSS antenna), USBL positioning systems and multibeam echosounders.

GEOSIGHT also provide laser scanning services, producing 3D models of existing vessel hulls, interiors, frames, components and moulds which have then gone on to be used as the basis for further new design work. These can be presented as point clouds or more traditional drawings as requested by our clients
