Saipem and Studio Rinnovabili, an independent company that offers both technical and economic consultancy services for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, have signed a collaboration agreement concerning the renewable energy sector on both the Italian and international markets.

The aim is to combine reciprocal competencies and experiences in the field of multidisciplinary Engineering & Construction services to realise wind and solar power systems. The expected synergies will allow Saipem and Studio Rinnovabili to grasp the business opportunities offered by the renewable energy market in a more competitive and efficient way.

Francesco Balestrino, Renewables and Green Technologies Business Development Manager from Saipem’s XSIGHT Division, comments, “Our collaboration with Studio Rinnovabili constitutes a further element in the business diversification strategy launched by Saipem as a global solution provider in the energy transition process. We believe, indeed, that our consolidated experience and innovative capabilities in the services sector for the oil and gas industry are complementary to the development of infrastructures in the area of renewable energy, and that the synergy with Studio Rinnovabili will allow both a rapid growth of the specialist skills required by the new market and a greater presence on the Italian market.”

“We are enthusiastic about the agreement with Saipem, which will allow us to expand our services at a global level,” says Luca Aprati, Partner in Studio Rinnovabili. “By making available our 15 years of experience and project successes in the study of winds, as well as in the fields of design, consultancy and advice, we aim to contribute to the birth of new services for renewables in areas where oil and gas technologies are traditionally adopted and, more generally, to new utility-scale renewable investments.”
