In a move to grow our international footprint, we are pleased to announce our acquisition by global equipment and engineering services provider Sparrows Group.

Sparrows already supply capital equipment to the wind energy industry and the deal will significantly strengthen the group’s operations and maintenance capabilities in the sector.

Alpha Offshore will continue to be run under our existing management as a separate entity within the Sparrows Group, ensuring operational consistency whilst also providing us with access to a wider network of expertise and resources. Sparrows’ engineering and design capability in structural, mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and reliability disciplines, combined with their extensive global network will enhance our existing capability and international presence.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, said: “Alpha Offshore is well-respected in the industry and they are a trusted supplier to a number of wind farm operators and turbine Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Their specialist in-depth knowledge and experience of in-demand services such as blade and turbine generator repairs, inspections and upgrades makes them a valuable addition to our group.

“We expect demand for their services to continue to grow as wind developments age and equipment warranty periods expire.”

Mikkel Lund, chief executive officer at Alpha Offshore said: “Being part of the larger Sparrows Group delivers many advantages for us and our customers as we look to expand into new regions. Their worldwide footprint and reputation gives us access to skilled technicians all over the globe and will provide many opportunities, particularly in the US and Asia. The synergies between both organisations allow us to support each other’s plans for diversification and geographical expansion.”
