UFW has secured the sole distribution rights in the UK and Ireland for the EC Wind 55kW wind turbine, manufactured in Sweden.
The 55kW wind turbine has been developed by ex-Volvo engineers using technology normally found in larger turbines.
As part of the introduction of the 55kW turbine into the industry EC Wind has agreed to underwrite a performance guarantee on the first 20 turbines sold. The turbine also comes with a 7 year warranty.
David Taylor, UFW business development manager heading up the EC Wind project, said: “Obtaining the distribution rights to EC Wind opens a whole new chapter within the development of wind energy in the UK and Ireland. The EC Wind 55kW is the highest performing product on the market with a 7 year warranty, which is the longest in the industry and together with the unparalleled performance guarantee allows for a secure investment. In most cases a return on the capital investment will be realised within the warranty period.
“This indicates how confident we are in the EC Wind 55kW machine. We have every faith that it will dominate the market, having already seen an impressive sign up to date.”
