    Renewable Parts and Strathclyde University to refurbish turbine components

    May 5, 2022 - MarketLine


      UK-based wind turbine technician Renewable Parts has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the University of Strathclyde to remanufacture and refurbish wind turbine components.

      Under the MoU, the two organisations aim to identify opportunities in the British market to improve the sustainability of the renewable energy supply chain.

      The agreement will combine the UniversityâEs market knowledge with Renewable PartsâE understanding of wind turbines with the aim to facilitate a more sustainable supply chain.

      University of Strathclyde chief commercial officer Gillian Docherty said: âEœWe are delighted to formalise our partnership with Renewable Parts, which aligns with our commitment to sustainability and also leverages our expertise and capabilities to meet the business and technical needs of industry.

      âEœWe look forward to further collaborating on projects to develop cutting edge remanufacture technology which will help drive change within the wind industry, benefit the circular economy in Scotland, and reduce waste.âE

      Renewable Parts chief executive James Barry said: âEœThe growth of wind energy in the UK creates a great opportunity but significant supply chain challenge to meet our future capacity needs.

      âEœThe obligation to make this sustainable, applying circular economy technology, will generate a new, green economy within our country.

      âEœThis agreement enables the continued growth of what is an important, yet lesser-seen, part of the renewable energy system.âE쳌

      At the COP26 conference in Glasgow last year, the UK government set a target to have 30GW of onshore wind capacity and 40GW of offshore capacity installed by 2030.

      These targets were recently underscored in the governmentâE(TM)s British Energy Security Strategy, which aims to bolster the countryâE(TM)s domestic energy generation and reduce its dependence on foreign imports.

      The strategy includes plans to increase the UKâE(TM)s production of wind and solar farms, as well as hydrogen and nuclear energy assets.
