Stobart & Sons
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. Producing over 60,000 tonnes of animal feed per annum, the business provides valuable employment and has long been run with sustainability in mind.
The client, Peter Stobart, and his family, are among the first pioneers in community wind generation in the UK, having operated wind turbines at their facility for over twenty years. The business has significant energy needs; approximately 2million units per annum. However, in line with his vision for a sustainable business, Peter wished to ensure that this requirement be met by renewable energy as much as possible.
In July 2012, Turbowinds supplied and installed a Turbowinds T400-34 400kW wind turbine. The turbine is expected to meet as much as 50% of the business’ energy needs.
Enviko are sole approved installers of Turbowind wind turbines in the UK.
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.
