Medium-scale Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Norvento has completed 10 new turbine installations throughout the UK in the first half of this year – despite the UK government removing its subsidies to the onshore wind sector.

A ‘healthy’ order pipeline for the its 100kW turbines has seen a further two sites enter construction in the same period, with another seven fully consented turbine sites across Scotland and Wales awaiting installation in the second half of the year –  weather permitting.

This new construction activity is an indication of the ongoing ability of the medium wind sector to support the ambitions of UK landowners and high-energy commercial users as they look to become energy independent, diversify revenue streams, meet sustainability targets and unlock substantial electricity cost savings.

Meanwhile, from Q1 2017 a new model of the turbine will be available to the market, with incremental cost-saving and performance-boosting improvements to the generator, nacelle, blades and operations and maintenance access.
