Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) is celebrating its five-year anniversary as it prepares for several temporary projects beginning this year, a new vessel under construction and the development of a full offshore engineering capability.

Founded by directors Eric Briar, John Tye and Toby Mead in early 2014, the business has become recognised for its knowledge and expertise in delivering temporary power and engineering solutions across the offshore renewables industry.

In 2016, following multiple projects across Europe, MRE commissioned the build of its first vessel, Manor Venture, constructed by Manor Marine shipyard in Portland, Dorset.

In 2017, MRE acquired the Manor Marine shipyard, which has become the company headquarters and is also where the company’s second vessel is under construction.

The acquisition of this 6000sqm facility allows MRE to provide a full engineering capability from design to fabrication, a service that has boosted the company’s potential in the offshore wind sector.

As projects move further offshore, temporary power will become increasingly vital to de-risk the construction phase, said MRE. In line with this demand, the company has increased the number of its employees and made new additions to the senior management team.
