Greenwise reports on Gaia-Wind's manufacturing opening in Scotland
Small wind firm Gaia-Wind has opened a turbine manufacturing, design and distribution facility in Glasgow.
The state of art Glasgow Wind Turbine Hub was formerly opened yesterday by Scottish Enterprise Minister Jim Mather and moves Gaia-Wind's production from Arhus, Denmark.
After only two months, the plant is churning out four turbines a week with plans to up that to at least eight later in the year. Over the first year, Gaia-Wind expects to produce 350 new turbines, and, over time, to pump £5 million into the Scottish economy.
The company is expecting the new facility to create jobs for around 80 workers, with even more possible in the supply chain through transport, electronics, steel fabrication, dealers and contractors.
