ReNEWS Article: Argyll-based Renewables Parts Limited has been awarded £20,307 in funding from HIE.
A Scottish wind supply chain company will increase its production capacity, having secured funding from Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
Argyll-based Renewables Parts Limited (RPL) has been awarded £20,307 in funding.
The company, in Lochgilphead, will also create two new full-time jobs.
RPL’s logistics supply business includes replacement parts and consumables for out-of-warranty wind farms, which the company has identified as a new market opportunity.
Extending its manufacturing processes will enable to company to transform used products into assets through remanufacturing, reuse, product disassembly and reprocessing, cutting waste throughout the product life-cycle and in the industry more widely.
RPL general manager Michael Forbes said: “HIE have been a strong advocate of Renewable Parts Ltd ever since the business was founded.
“We are delighted with the many forms of support, including training, guidance and financial. The most recent capital project has allowed the business to take advantage of a gap in the market for refurbished components.
“This is helping to create a circular economy where it was much needed, as well as further local jobs in an area of population decline. We very much look forward to continuing to work with HIE as the business continues to grow.”
