Pearce Renewables, a leader in engineering, operations, and maintenance for renewable energy infrastructure acquired Mortenson Energy Services, LLC (“MES”) to create the leading independent service provider to the renewable energy industry. Within the last year, Pearce Renewables has assembled best-in-class operations and maintenance companies and leaders serving utility-scale wind, solar, electric vehicle (EV) charging, and battery energy storage system infrastructure.
Mortenson Energy Services provides renewable energy repair and maintenance services and is well known in the wind industry for highly experienced teams in corrective maintenance, blade repair, and major and mid-level component exchange, as well as troubleshooting, commissioning, and other technical operations. Pearce Renewables, through its World Wind & Solar and MaxGen Energy Services brands, is well known for its safe, responsive, and highly trained technicians complemented by engineering and parts capabilities.
“The combination with Mortenson Energy Services creates a full suite of services to meet customers’ growing maintenance and repair needs while attracting and retaining the highest quality talent in the wind industry as the leader in the market,” said Zack Dorfman, Pearce Renewables’ Senior Vice President of Wind. “The team at Mortenson Energy Services shares our steadfast commitment to safety, integrity, customer responsiveness, and quality, making them an ideal addition to our organization.”
The renewable energy industry is growing fast, and Pearce Renewables is growing faster. Pearce entered renewable energy a year ago with acquisitions of World Wind & Solar and MaxGen Energy Services. Soon after, the services team from Suzlon North America joined to bring unique capabilities in engineering, spare parts, and technical wind services. Zack Dorfman, former leader of GE’s North American Wind Services team, joined to lead the Pearce Renewables Wind business. Kyle Williams, a former leader of Tesla’s energy services team, joined to lead the Pearce Renewables EV business. Pearce Renewables acquired A & A Wind Pros to add wind turbine cleaning and yaw puck services. Today, with the addition of Mortenson Energy Services, Pearce Renewables has over 750 technicians throughout the country and is adding weekly to meet growing demand.
“Mortenson Energy Services has been a successful and growing business since it was created in 2014 to supplement our core wind EPC operations,” said Tim Maag, Vice President and General Manager at Mortenson. “The combination with Pearce will provide tremendous opportunities for team members and ensure a continued strong future for this business and the quality services it provides to customers.”
