Ryse Energy on July 12 announced the acquisition of Primus Wind Power, a large and long-time manufacturer of micro wind turbines. Both companies are DWEA members. “This acquisition will enable us to offer our clients in international markets a wider, more diverse offering of high-performance wind turbines and hybrid renewable energy systems, whilst it fast-tracks our growth in the Americas and unlocks significant potential in nearby markets,” said Alistar Munro, CEO and founder of U.K.-based Ryse Energy in a press release. “We are excited about the future of the AIR turbines within the Ryse Energy portfolio,” added Ken Kotalik, Director of Global Sales and Operations for Primus Wind Power, based in Lakewood, Colorado.
The Primus Wind Power AIR turbines will become part of the broader small turbine portfolio (3-60 kW capacity) provided by Ryse Energy. More than 180,000 AIR turbines have been installed worldwide since 1995. With CSA approval to UL and CSA specifications, Primus Wind Power’s AIR turbines have been used in a range of applications, including marine, telecoms, military, residential, and more. Ryse Energy boasts more than 180,000 installations across seven continents. The company offers wind and solar standalone technologies either grid-connected or off-grid with energy storage, and “hybridizes” its wind technology with solar PV and energy storage to “create bespoke and reliable hybrid renewable solutions across a variety of sectors, from decarbonizing infrastructure such as telecoms and O&G, to community power for rural electrification.” Learn more about Ryse Energy here.
