History[edit]

Falck Renewables was started in 2002 as part of the Falck Group of energy generating companies specialising in producing energy from renewable sources. Falck Renewables manages construction and financing of all its projects and has sole responsibility for wind farm ownership and operation. The company built its first commercial wind farm in the UK at Cefn Croes in Wales in 2005, using 39 GE turbines, each of 1.5 MW capacity.[2] Other farms operated in the UK include Ben Aketil, Boyndie, Earlsburn, Kilbraur and Millennium.

Falck Renewables has now developed and constructed 12 wind farms in the 4 countries, with more than 400MW of capacity. In addition, it has projects on its books totalling another 400MW, at various stages of development.

Falck Renewables typically develops wind projects in joint venture partnerships. In the UK it has joint ventures with RDC Scotland Ltd and Coriolis Energy.[3]
