Envikowind have worked on numerous Wind projects, from small remote power solutions of a few hundred kilowatts (non grid connected power systems ) to larger more complex solutions of many thousands of megawatts (MW)
Stobart & Sons is a family-run agribusiness based in Hesket Newmarket, near Wigton in Cumbria. A supplier of animal feed products to the local farming community, Stobart & Sons has been an integral part of this rural area in the North-West of England for many years.
Enviko has led the delivery of a wind project in Southside Farms, Aberdeenshire, for 1 x Freebreeze RRB V27 225kW Wind Turbine since late 2010. Since then a large wind speed assessment campaign has taken place, utilising a 10m mast with a final ‘hub height’ wind speed of approximately 6.2m/s. After a very lengthy planning process, and reducing the development down to one turbine, the site achieved planning consent in December 2012.
Enviko was first consulted in late 2011 by the Brown’s, Meikle Ussie, regarding the suitability of the site as a potential for wind energy development. A period of feasibility followed whilst different site layouts and turbine options were in discussion.
Turbine procurement is one of the most important aspects of a wind energy development. Turbines may represent up to 80% of the capital cost of a wind farm and their reliability and long-term power output are crucial to the financial performance of the project.
It is important to secure not only an acceptable price, but also the right guarantees, delivery and performance bonds and specific guarantees on aspects of performance governed by planning conditions, such as noise.
We have long-standing contacts with all the major manufacturers. Acting on behalf of owners, investors and banks, Enviko draws on years of experience to offer a comprehensive array of commercial and management services.
Whether planning, acquiring, operating, re-powering or selling a wind farm, Enviko can offer clients a range of skills and experience – from essential project services such as due diligence, through to adding value by way of project lifetime support.
