Orenda Energy Solutions has confirmed that an independent investor has purchased two more of its Skye™ wind turbines to be installed on a site in Scotland.

The investor will lease the land from a farmer who already has a Skye wind turbine on his farm. Orenda will be installing these two turbines themselves which are scheduled to be installed and commissioned over the summer.

With its global head office based in Ontario, Orenda was set up in 2012 with the purpose of supplying  the most innovative, safest, and reliable small wind turbine systems.

Steve McMahon, Vice-President, Sales & Marketing at Orenda said: “Our engineering team has designed a range of small wind turbines, based on a simple and safe mechanical design.

“Each wind turbine incorporates a direct drive generator, fixed pitch blades, and an innovative braking system. This solid foundation is combined with a real-time computerized controller, delivering optimal performance with unsurpassed safety.

“Every Orenda wind turbine is mounted on a unique and patented fully integrated hinged hydraulic tower system which lowers the cost of ownership delivering best in class energy/$ over the entire life of the installation”.

Steve McMahon recently contributed an expert article on planning regulations and wind farm applications to Scottish Energy News, which is now being further used in Orenda Energy Solutions’ own sales newsletter – as demonstrated below:
