Key benefits for Developers of working directly with the manufacturer

The Windflow Sweet Spot:

Windflow turbines will be extremely competitive on sites where one or more of the following apply:

  • Designed and optimised for middle and higher wind speed sites where output is greatest
  • The only fully IEC certified class 1 turbine with a tip height under the important 50 m planning threshold (33-500 1A) or from 54 m (45-500 2A variant)
  • Able to operate on sites with high shear and high turbulence, thanks to its load-avoiding design
  • The lightest and most compact 500 kW turbine, could avoid expensive access costs for single installations
  • Ability to manage active and reactive power over a very wide range, assists connection where grid is weak or connection is actively managed
  • Single lift of fully assembled nacelle and rotor reduces cost of installation and weather risk of delays

Commercially Proven:

Britain’s demanding wind regime requires a turbine which will provides trouble-free performance.  For the best and windiest of your sites, this requires the toughest of turbines.  An Independent Engineer's report from Garrad Hassan concluded that "the Windflow 500 can be considered commercially proven", their highest level of maturity.
