Graham Hacon – 3sun Group

Q: What have you got planned for the rest of the year?
We have experienced a period of rapid growth and an increase in demand for 3sun Group products and services across the UK and Europe in recent months which has resulted in the creation of 100 new jobs. We will continue to increase our manpower within our technical teams by recruiting highly experienced personnel for UK and international projects. The Group will continue its support of apprenticeships and skills development with the launch of 3sunAcademy, a regional centre of excellence for training and competence assessment.

Q: What do you see as the growth area in renewables?
The UK renewables market generates massive investment and employment opportunities. It remains a key growth sector for the nation’s economy. We have seen significant growth in the European offshore wind market in recent years, and driven by the recent improvement in cost-effectiveness of wind and solar technology we predict that it will continue to thrive.

Q: How is your company cutting its carbon footprint?
We are constantly looking for ways to cut our carbon footprint, 3sun Group recruit locally to cut the number of staff travelling to work and polluting the air with car fumes. We have also implemented a video conference system as a form of communication between the Great Yarmouth, Aberdeen, Oban and Denmark bases, reducing the need for air travel to get to internal meetings.
