Enterprise Minister opens state of the art Glasgow small wind turbine hub

March 09, 2011

Production of small wind turbines moves from Denmark to central Glasgow with the potential to provide up to 80 jobs.

Enterprise Minister Jim Mather has formally opened the Gaia-Wind Manufacturing, Design and Distribution Hub. From Scottish Enterprise News

With production moving to Scotland from Arhus in Denmark, the project is expected to:

  • manufacture around 350 turbines per year in its first year;
  • provide around 80 manufacturing and distribution jobs over time; and
  • inject an estimated £5 million into the Scottish economy.

Just two months after announcing the project, world leading Small Wind turbine manufacturer Gaia-Wind Ltd have completed the start up of their state of the art facility and turbines are already rolling off the line.

Managing Director Johnnie Andringa said: “We are off to a fantastic start: The plant is up and running in record time and we are currently producing four turbines per week. We want to be producing more than twice that many by the end of the year.
