Irish wind energy innovation company Airsynergy said that it has picked Cavan-based Obelisk Group to sell its small wind turbines in Ireland and the UK.

Airsynergy's deal with Obelisk comes shortly after US company Aris Renewable Energy, headed by Irish-American businessman Gerry Ryan, obtained a licence to manufacture and sell wind turbines and wind-powered street lights using Airsynergy technology in the US.

Obelisk employs over 300 in Ireland, UK and South Africa. The company's renewable division specialises in wind farm operations.

"Our involvement extends from development, procurement, construction, commissioning and operations and maintenance of wind farms.

"We believe our expertise, coupled with Airsynergy's turbine innovation, will deliver superior small-wind solutions for Ireland and the UK," said Obelisk Networks managing director Padraig Brady.

Airsynergymakes relatively small turbines that use a new type of blade to boost power production.

In February, Airsynergy announced that it had raised €5m in a move that valued the company at €40m.
