Wood Group company SgurrEnergy has boosted its presence in the Americas by opening an office in Mexico City.

Mexico aims to add 20GW of renewable energy by 2030 and generate 35% of the country's energy from clean resources by 2024. Already active in the country, SgurrEnergy has worked on both wind and solar projects there.

The new office will be headed up by business development manager David Barrie. He said: "There is a huge amount of potential for renewable energy solutions in Mexico and with ambitious energy targets in place, this paves the way for significant growth and market development. I'm looking forward to driving SgurrEnergy’s presence in the region."

The opening of the Mexican office follows SgurrEnergy’s expansion into Chile.
