About Forte Renewables

Forte Renewables was founded in Amsterdam in 2012 by a group of engineers from the technical team of an international wind energy developer. Using our experience from project acquisitions, engineering management and finance close we commenced offering clients expert technical support in risk management and project realisation.

At Forte we provide renewable energy consultancy services to stakeholders on a global basis and specialise in provision of Technical Due Diligence, Owner’s Engineering and Design services to developers, investors and operators. In addition to our historical offering of onshore and offshore wind services, in 2020 we strengthened our team with international solar PV experts allowing us to cater for our clients’ needs in that ever growing market.

Since our founding in 2012 we have completed projects in over 20 countries on 3 continents and have grown significantly in size with up to 60 personnel currently working on our projects in multiple countries.

We have supported clients in Poland on over 20 Wind Farms and now have 40+ Polish team members. We combine our international knowledge with local market expertise to manage risks related to Polish construction law compliance and ensure asset owners achieve their project goals.

From Forte’s project development background we understand stakeholders technical support needs and provide full-scope services combined with rapid response times. This gives our clients a trusted partner who accelerates their attainment of key technical milestones.

If you are a renewable energy stakeholder seeking expert technical advisory support please contact us and we will be happy to discuss how our expert team and know-how can support you in the meeting your challenging targets. Let our risk management expertise power your project!
