Located off the coast of Suffolk, the wind farm will be capable of producing enough electricity to power around 500,000 homes and is anticipated to generate first power in 2019 and be fully-operational by 2020, according to a press release on the Sparrow group’s website.

The cranes will be designed and manufactured at Sparrows facilities in Aberdeen for Granada Material Handling on behalf of ScottishPower Renewables.

This contract marks the largest renewable contract to date for Sparrows, a company that has dealt mainly in the oil and gas industry.

Production is expected to start early this year with final delivery slated for mid-2018.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer of Sparrows, said, “East Anglia ONE is a large scale and high-profile wind farm that will deliver substantial benefits for the UK for many years to come. This contract award is recognition of the expertise that exists in the UK and we are working hard to ensure we play our part in cementing Aberdeen and the North East as a global skills hub and providing job security for our employees.”
