Cora announced that Aer Soléir, a Dublin-headquartered company focused on developing, constructing and operating a multi-gigawatt pipeline of renewable energy projects across Europe, has selected Cora as a project portfolio management tool. After a competitive tender process, it selected Cora for its out-of-the-box suitability and configurability.

Andy Kinsella, CEO of Aer Soléir, said, “We’re incredibly focused on managing risk and creating value when deploying capital across our portfolio of wind, solar and battery storage projects. We want to manage our entire portfolio in real-time, using a data-driven risk-based approach.

“Cora will give us that power. In evaluating a number of platform providers, we were really impressed with how Cora aligns with our vision for portfolio delivery. Implementing Cora will ensure we continue to maximize the value of our projects, make the right decisions quickly and continue to ensure our best-in-class approach to project delivery.”

Philip Martin, CEO, Cora Systems, said, “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with Aer Soléir. We see real synergies between both our companies. Cora brings a lot of expertise to the Renewables Infrastructure sector.

“That in turn, can bring tremendous benefit in how Aer Soléir manage their programs, enabling them to continue to scale at the current pace and to immediately see where the value and risk is across their entire portfolio. We believe it will be a long and fruitful partnership for both our businesses and look forward to working in partnership in the years ahead.”
