The Humber Renewables Awards 2019 has named GEV Wind Power, one of Europe and North America’s most experienced wind-turbine blade maintenance companies, as a finalist in the medium-to-large business of the year category.
The annual awards recognize businesses based in the region that are committed to the development of renewable energy across the Humber – a hub for the industry.
“We are delighted to be named a finalist and nominated among other Humber based businesses that are driving innovation across the world from the region which is renowned for being a major hub for the renewable energy industry,” said David Fletcher, managing director of GEV Wind Power commented on being named a finalist.
The prestigious nomination was announced by organizers as the energy sector specialist celebrated five years of making Hull its headquarters, and deploying more than 200 technicians around the globe. From providing maintenance for a single turbine manufacturer GEV now delivers inspection, fabric and tower services to owners, developers and manufacturers worldwide.
Offices have been established in Hamburg, Texas, and Rhode Island, and turnover doubled last year to £15 million on the back of 91% increase in sales.
“With the continuing support from Team Humber Marine Alliance and Green Port Hull we have been able to leverage our skills and innovations to become a leading service provider within the wind turbine O&M industry,” added Fletcher. “For us this is really only the beginning as we set up our training academy in Rhode Island to develop and grow the GEV brand even further in the USA whilst continuing to expand across European land mass.”
