Highland-based Global Energy Group (GEG) and Italy's Rosetti Marino have agreed a five-year partnership to deliver large scale renewable energy and energy transition projects around the UK.

The agreement, which included an option for a two-year extension, will enable the two companies to jointly tender and complete engineering, procurement, construction and installation contracts in the renewable energy sector in the UK.

GEG and Ravenna headquartered Rosetti Marino are of comparable size and with similar family led roots.

The new partnership will offer customers a wide range of services, from production of large steel structures to complete turnkey solutions from concept to commissioning.

Newly appointed GEG chief executive, Tim Cornelius, commented: “The UK Continental Shelf has the potential to make a deep and meaningful impact on the UK’s overall net zero target. Sharing existing expertise and infrastructure from the oil and gas industry with the offshore wind industry will be integral in the development of a world class supply chain to support developers and owners of large-scale UK projects.

"Rosetti is a world class partner in the energy sector who are also dedicated to the energy transition journey and we are delighted to have formed this strategic relationship with them to strengthen our offering to utilities, energy companies, developers and owners of assets and projects in UK waters.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Stefano Cappelli, Rosetti Marino's chief commercial officer, said: “GEG share the same attitude and outlook towards the development of renewable energy and we are confident that our combined competences will consolidate our presence in this market. We are laying the foundations for what I am certain will be a successful and fruitful partnership and this strategic alliance will allow us to offer first class EPC services to the UK energy sector.”

Rosetti and GEG intend to offer technical and fabrication solutions to customers who are actively helping the UK achieve its 2050 net zero target, with a strong focus on UK local content.
