We aim to offer our first-class maintenance support to all who require it. No matter the brand, whether customers have one or one-hundred turbines; we are here to provide agile, honest and responsive support. We offer regular and corrective maintenance, blade inspection and repair, 24/7 remote monitoring, and statutory inspections. Basically, everything one would need to keep their turbines turning. We are known for our wide-ranging expertise, extensive resources and personal approach to help customers to get the most out of the turbines.


Our head office team is based in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. The rest of our 120 employees are employed all over Europe, maintaining wind turbines all over the world. In the UK we employ over 80 people, of which the majority are Service Technicians.


We are an enthusiastic and young team, in the sense that we’re growing the teams as our company is growing. That creates a unique and dynamic environment full of energy and collaboration! The team is open, direct and honest and reflects the diver’s world we live in! Looking forward to meet you!


Here at Full Circle we are very lucky to be very successful recruiting all our new employees ourselves. Something we are very proud of.

Despite our kind requests to all of you not to reach out for support in this area, our HR team, hiring managers and our front office are overwhelmed with contact requests, telephone calls, email requests and other attempts to get in touch. We know you guys are out there, we understand that this cold acquisition is part of your job, but we strongly request you to respect our time and not reach out. We want to use all the time we have to make the world a greener place!

If we ever need support, we'll work with our preferred suppliers (and no, we are not looking for new ones ;-))

We appreciate your understanding on this, and we wish you the best of luck on finding your next client.
