So I posed a question on The Pickled Egg Quiz...Who is the largest Wind Turbine Manufacturer in the UK and where is it located.
James came up with MHI Vestas Japanese/Danish venture in the Isle of Wight. But how long is the list of contenders?
Well there is a Korean Firm in Campbelltown Argyll who build Wind Turbine Towers. A boom industry you might expect no problems securing work? Wrong if this article is accurate....

CS Wind (A Korean company) has been urged by union Unite and local politicians to seek orders for its Campbeltown turbine tower plant or allow others to take over the facility.
An open letter signed by factory shop stewards as well as councillors and an MP and MSP expresses concern that the company has not secured a single contract since making “almost every” employee at the plant redundant “despite the fact that it is the only one in the country”.
The signatories add that they have been informed by developers the company, headquartered in South Korea, has not even been willing to bid for contracts which the Machrihanish facility would have been suitable for.
