Gaia-Wind in Double Awards Triumph

November 09, 2011

Leading small wind turbine manufacturer Gaia-Wind Ltd today announced a winning double:

  • Ranked at No 5 and the only small wind company in the list of the fastest growing “Cleantech” companies in Europe, and
  • Shortlisted for the Scottish Renewables Green Energy Award for business growth

CEO Johnnie Andringa said:

“This great news is good for the whole small wind market. Gaia-Wind Ltd has demonstrated outstanding business growth due to its product (the Gaia-Wind 133-11kW small wind turbine) that excels in:

  • performance (annual energy generated)
  • reliability (1255 years operating experience) and
  • low environment impact (extremely low noise levels)

“Both of these accolades mark important milestones in Gaia-Wind’s five year plan, designed to grow our business into a major producer and exporter of Scottish manufactured small wind turbines.

“Awards such as these recognise the effort and hard work put in by renewables companies in what, in some respects is still a fledgling market. They help to put the industry in the limelight and to an extent also stimulate competition. This is good for our customers and for the industry as a whole”.

The awards follow last year’s success where Gaia-Wind was named Most Promising Emerging Business by the Hillington Innovation Awards.

The Scottish Renewables Green Energy Award for business growth - Sponsored by AREG is for outstanding business growth; or the development of exciting and ambitious plans for the future by either a new or existing renewable energy business.
