Who we are

As a provider of specialist engineering services to the onshore and offshore wind industry we are committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and quality to every project we work on.

We provide operations and maintenance, and installation and commissioning services for wind turbines through the provision of highly skilled technical personnel. We work with wind farm operators and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) throughout the lifecycle of wind turbines, assuring the reliability and integrity of critical equipment.

Our reputation is built on the quality of our people, all of which embody our culture for delivering excellence.

Our history

Since becoming part of the Sparrows Group in December 2017, we have seen a period of considerable growth. While the acquisition strengthened Sparrows’ position in the renewables sector, becoming part of the larger Group has enabled us to utilise its geographical footprint and technical network to support clients in new regions.

Alpha was established in 2007 by our CEO Mikkel Lund, in his hometown of Struer in Denmark. With a background in mechanics, Mikkel worked as an engineer on ferry routes in the North Sea where he could see the growth of the wind farms.

Seeing an opportunity to support the wind industry, Mikkel set up Alpha, offering technical services to offshore wind turbines. From those early contracts, the company grew over the next few years and by 2013 had more than 50 technicians working on a number of projects across Europe. Now with over 300 specialist technical personnel our work extends to projects in Australia and Asia Pacific and we have recently established a new operational base in the USA.
