A firm that aims to make the renewable energy business more environmentally friendly expects to create high skilled jobs in Argyll after winning a landmark funding award. Renewable Parts, which refurbishes equipment used on wind turbines and the like, said it plans to hire at least five people this year to work on projects in its Lochgilphead base. The recruitment drive comes after the company was awarded £171,000 funding by Zero Waste Scotland. The company was the first SME to get funding from the body for a circular economy project. Renewable Parts, which has an operations centre in Renfrew, will use the money for refurbishment projects developed out of Lochgilphead in conjunction with its research partner the University of Strathclyde.
