December 6 (Renewables Now) - Energy consult GmbH, the wind farm services unit of German renewables firm PNE AG (ETR:PNE3), has expanded its offering with the acquisition of local special services provider Rope Access Solutions GmbH for an undisclosed amount.

Rope Access Solutions offers services in the field of rope access technology, provides rotor blade and tower services for wind turbines and services in other industrial sectors for work at heights and depths. The company has been integrated into MEB Safety Services GmbH, which was acquired by Energy consult in 2018 and offers services for various safety systems in wind turbines.

The expansion of PNE's services around the operation of wind power turbines and wind power plants is in line with its scale-up strategy, according to the statement released on Thursday.
"[The acquisition] will enable us in future to carry out tests and work on towers and rotor blades independently and to train our internal and external specialist workers in the field of PSAgA (Personal Fall Protection Equipment)," Energy consult's managing director, Henning Wegner, said about the purchase.
