Double whammy for Gaia-Wind

Scottish small wind turbine manufacturer Gaia-Wind today has bagged a winning double. The company has been listed as one 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 has demonstrated outstanding business growth due to its product (the Gaia-Wind 133-11kW small wind turbine) that excels in performance, reliability  and low environment impact.

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.
