Aberdeen crane engineering firm Sparrows Group has acquired Danish wind energy firm Alpha Offshore Service.
Sparrows said the deal would help cements its operations and maintenance offering in the renewables sector.
Alpha specialises in delivering of operations and maintenance, and supervisory and commissioning services to onshore and offshore wind developments.
Alpha will continue to be run under the same management as a separate entity within the Sparrows Group.
Alpha currently employs 180 people, 19 of whom are based at its headquarters in Struer, Denmark.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Sparrows chief executive Stewart Mitchell 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.
“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.”
In February, Sparrows announced its largest renewables contract to date with the supply of 103 turbine platform cranes for the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.
