EWT Direct Wind has delivered a DW52 900kW wind turbine at the manufacturing site of global industrial insulation business, Kingspan, at Holywell in North Wales, UK.
The wind turbine will ensure that 90% of the power produced is consumed on-site when production lines are operating at full capacity, nearly 24-hours a day. In quieter work periods when the turbine is producing more power than needed, Kingspan will feed the excess into the national grid at a wholesale rate.
The turbine was designed and manufactured at EWT’s factory in the Netherlands. EWT technicians will monitor and provide service support to the wind turbine 24/7. The project was delivered during a 3-day factory shutdown, with all project partners working together. To fund the development and construction of the wind turbine, Kingspan agreed a long-term energy supply contract with the developer Sirius Renewables Group, for the lifetime of the wind turbine.
