EAPC Wind Energy Business Acquired by Westwood
Westwood announced today that it completed the acquisition of EAPC’s Wind Energy business on December 1, 2020. EAPC’s wind energy team has provided assessment and consulting services on more than 30,000 MW of wind farm projects throughout North America, South America, and Europe.
Jay Haley, P.E., Brian Muhs, and Anthony Schrader join Westwood as part of the acquisition. Haley, previously EAPC’s Principal of Wind Energy, will support the integration of EAPC wind clients in his new role as Wind Resource Specialist at Westwood. He feels this acquisition will provide growth opportunities to his team and expanded services for many clients. “We are excited to continue to do what we love,” Haley says. “Combining capabilities with Westwood allows us to become part of a larger team focused on the wind industry.”
Westwood’s Vice President, Wind, Steve Windingland, P.E., anticipates they will hit the ground running with Haley and his team. Windingland says, “Jay, Brian, and Anthony’s seasoned experience will bolster Westwood’s wind resource capabilities and increase the suite of available wind services to our clients.”
Westwood’s new team members bring additional services in wind resource assessment, met tower installation and service, sodar sensing equipment deployment, turbine, noise and shadow flicker studies, microwave beam path studies, and general project development due diligence.
Westwood will also be the sole sales and service provider of windPRO in the US and Canada. The software is used by many stakeholders in the wind industry. Westwood is eager to continue to implement and promote its capabilities in future work.
