Arnish never have built turbines. They have, however, fabricated the tubular/conical steel towers that the turbines and the blades sit on. The turbines are made by specialist manufacturers and are very expensive. The steel towers are not difficult to fabricate and are much cheaper in comparison. The problem being that the cost of transportation of the completed steel structures becomes a significant percentage of the tower manufacturer's cost - the further the distance from the place of manufacture to the windfarm location the higher the percentage.
