German based renewables firm, RTS Wind AG, has established a British division to serve the potential in the growing UK on and offshore sectors.

Peter Jorgensen has been appointed head of the UK division who brings with him over 20 years of experience in the industry latterly with CPower and CWind.

He said: “Stiff challenges and great opportunities lie ahead of us all. The whole RTS team is looking forward to master them. RTS Wind is developing from a premium service provider geared for Germany and surrounding countries to a RTS-Holding with international orientation specialised in the wind sector.”

The new division will service both the on and offshore sectors from its new head office in Colchester.

RTS Wind AG dates back to 1997 when the sector was still new in Germany. It initially supplied skilled technicians for wind energy projects from Bremen in the north of Germany.
