Cranes currently being manufactured by Sparrows Group, which will be installed at ScottishPower Renewables’ East Anglia ONE windfarm off the coast of Suffolk, were showcased today (Friday 13 April) to Colin Clark MP at the company’s headquarters in Aberdeen.
The firm is supplying 102 of its WindMaster cranes for each of the offshore development’s turbines, which once built and operational, will provide enough clean energy to power the equivalent of almost 500,000 homes in the UK.
Sparrows is currently the only company in the UK with the capability to design and manufacture luffing cranes suitable for the offshore wind industry.
MP Colin Clark visited the firm’s facilities which are based in his Gordon constituency in Aberdeen. The company’s workshop has recently been reconfigured to meet its growing number of work scopes in the renewable sector.
