Mission Impacts

The investment will allow Aurora to service projects right across the renewables sector, including wind, solar, hydrogen, carbon capture & storage, as well as pumped hydro and waste to energy.


About Aurora

Launched in June 2022, Inverness-headquartered Aurora Energy Services supports the energy sector transition to net zero and specialises in the onshore and offshore wind, hydropower, telecoms & infrastructure and waste-to-energy sectors, while also providing oil and gas project support and engineering services.

"Aurora has an exceptional team from a proven background of expertise honed in the oil and gas and industrials markets, now turning those skills to support the renewables sector.

Aurora’s remit to develop new talent and retrain workers who already have deep, critical energy sector knowledge is a vital link in realising the potential before us."

CEO Doug Duguid said: "In securing this welcome financial support from the Scottish National Investment Bank it means we can accelerate our transition into renewables on several fronts.

It will enhance our recruitment of people living and working in rural Scotland and allow us to be able to offer more job and training opportunities in a shorter timeframe.

Aurora have recently opened a Renewable Energy Training Centre in Inverness - the only facility of its kind in the Scottish Highlands - and have other bases in Aberdeen, Wick and Huntly dedicated to the servicing, engineering and fabrication needs of the renewables sector. "
