Renewable Parts Ltd win Remade in Scotland Award

Posted on 16th May, 2019 Under News

The Business Insider Made in Scotland Awards, sponsored by the Advanced Forming Research Centre, celebrate the best of Scottish manufacturing, showcasing innovative and emerging talent across a range of sectors. For the second year running, SIR was delighted to sponsor the Remade in Scotland category, which recognises the achievements of manufacturing businesses focused on sustainability, remanufacturing, and circular economy practices. Up against Moock Environmental Solutions Ltd and Whisky Frames in the shortlist, Renewable Parts Ltd were deserving winners; within the last year the company has opened a dedicated refurbishment centre, focused on making a ‘greener’ wind energy sector. Indeed, the entire ethos of the company is built upon a circular economy vision and strategy.

Michael Forbes, Manager of the Refurbishment Centre (pictured) explains what the Remade in Scotland award means to them;

“We were delighted to win the award in recognition of our work in creating a circular economy in the UK wind industry. The new refurbishment centre has been focused on undertaking thorough refurbishments of wind turbine components, recirculating parts that had previously been considered beyond repair. This has been made possible through collaboration with various departments of the University of Strathclyde and partnerships with some of our customers who are focused on reducing their carbon footprint and cutting waste. The company has invested heavily in workforce and capacity to provide scalable, cost competitive solutions. “
