Mainstream’s sale of its Neart na Gaoithe Offshore Wind project to the EDF Group in May has earned it a place in Business & Finance magazine’s first annual index of “outstanding Irish companies”.
The list, released today by Ireland’s leading business publisher, is a who’s who of the country’s top 100 companies based on best performance, innovation and growth. It cites the deal for the Scottish development, worth up to €650 million, and details Mainstream’s 1,200 MW project portfolio in Chile as its “most prized asset”.
Commenting on the announcement, Andy Kinsella, Chief Executive of Mainstream Renewable Power, said: “We are delighted to feature in Business & Finance most outstanding Irish Companies index for 2018.
“This has been a real game-changing year for Mainstream, having completed one of the biggest equity deals of 2018 in the UK and Ireland with the sale of our much-anticipated offshore wind project in Scotland. We are now entering a phase of unprecedented growth across our markets globally and we are thrilled to get this recognition for our strong performance in 2018.”
