MEMBER NEWS: THREE60 Energy invests in wind through strategic acquisition

THREE60 Energy has acquired wind operations and maintenance and renewables specialist, Bryan J Rendall (Electrical) Ltd (BJRE), bolstering our wind and wider renewable energy capabilities.

All of BJRE’s expert personnel will transfer to the THREE60 Energy team. The company’s office, located in Scotland, will remain in operation under THREE60 Energy.

BJRE holds numerous service contracts for operations and maintenance on wind turbines, substations and electrical services including high voltage (HV) and grid connections. The company boasts an impressive 90% customer retention with 75% of its revenue driven by renewables projects in wind, wave and tidal.

The business supplies directly to both end users and manufacturers, with its customers mainly based across Scotland. In addition, the company is an active member of the Scottish and local energy economies, building and operating microwave communication networks which link renewable energy sites across Scotland.

Further to wind, BJRE is experienced in material supplies, wireless communications, marine engineering, hydrogen production systems and energy storage with the company being held as the preferred supplier to the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) for almost 20 years.

Walter Thain, Group CEO at THREE60 Energy, said: “The breadth of knowledge and expertise which has been developed throughout the BJRE team is truly impressive. We are confident the company’s integration into the THREE60 Energy team will be seamless and will continue our mutual goal of growing and delivering better energy together.

“We are proud to continue to incorporate renewable energy into our strategic growth plans. Our recent Fit 4 Offshore Renewables ‘granted’ status is testament to our team’s dedication to providing renewable and sustainable energy resources, in this time of heightened energy security needs.

“The capability and technical expertise that this onshore wind operations and maintenance acquisition brings, coupled with our existing offshore capability, sets out our strategic intent in supporting the onshore and offshore wind markets, as well as future ScotWind developments, which will generate as much as 25GW of new, clean energy over the next decade.

“THREE60 Energy is a dynamic and multi-disciplined company, and we are proud to incorporate BJRE into our growing team and capabilities.”

Bryan Rendall at BJRE said: “We believe THREE60 Energy is the perfect fit to enable rapid growth and opportunities, and to strengthen and build new relationships across industry. We are very excited to progress together and ensure the highest standard of service to our customers, proudly as part of the THREE60 Energy team.”

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
