Tilting tower contract
£2 million wind turbine deal for Orenda Energy
Wind turbine manufacturer Orenda Energy Solutions has secured a £2 million deal for ten of its 51kW Skye ‘tilting tower’ wind turbines with privately-owned Italian investment fund, CanadEnergy.
The turbines will be built in Scotland in a phased programme over the next six to 12 months, with Orenda – which has plants in Livingston and Ontario – providing a complete turnkey solution including the developed sites, the wind turbine systems, installation, commissioning and on-going operation and maintenance.
For this contract CanadEnergy has created a UK subsidiary company, Britannia Energy which will own the developed sites.
While this is its first venture into the UK wind energy market, CanadEnergy has set its sights on actively expanding its projects pipeline across Europe and Canada, adding to a wide ‘green energy’ long term investments program. It already has a number of wind energy projects under development in Canada.
