Overseeing different aspects of Wind Energy

RMS Wind oversees several different aspects of wind energy:  development; construction; management; and operations including maintenance of large scale and community-based projects. These activities are represented by Rotor Mechanical Services, which built and now maintains the Dalhousie Mountain Wind Farm, new project Clydesdale Ridge and the community-based Affinity Renewables.
