Andy Kinsella, Mainstream's Group Chief Executive, said: "Mainstream is positioned to become one of a new class of Renewable Energy Majors as the transfer of capital from fossil fuels to sustainable energy accelerates.

Following a transformative year in which we successfully completed the sale of our offshore wind farm in Scotland, we now have a robust balance sheet and are unrestricted in our ambitions to help growth economies develop through the delivery of renewable energy capacity.

We are ready to embark on a significant expansion in our core Asia Pacific, Latin America and African markets, as well as returning to the UK's offshore wind sector where we have previously delivered 3.45GW of offshore wind.

The return to our core ownership structure means we are set to deliver material growth and returns for shareholders over the next decade."
