Norvento to provide two 100kW wind turbines for Shoreham Port in UK

By Editor


Norvento got consent from Adur Council authority for establishing twin nED100 turbines on the Shoreham Port site in UK.

The generated electricity will be supplied to power on-site pumps responsible for maintaining the water level in the locked basin of the port.

The wind turbines will deliver 555,000kWh of green energy annually.

At present, the annual energy consumption of the Pump House is around 475,000kWh.

The nED100 is ideal for specific requirements of the Shoreham Port site.

In addition, the in-built active and reactive power controls of the turbines are suited to the variable consumption profile of the pumps, which have been in place for over 40 years.

The turbine is also certified to the IEC 61400-1 design standard for safety and reliability, and is therefore able to operate in low noise mode, suitable for urban areas and close proximity to homes and businesses.

This was a key factor, both in the selection of Norvento and the approval of the planning application.

The project is scheduled for completion in August this year and will help Shoreham Port achieve its energy independence goal.

The twin-turbine project will complement port operations and reduce the port’s carbon footprint.

Community consultation has been an integral part of the planning process.

The development team engaged with the local community to design a low impact wind energy project that would benefit both the port and the surrounding area.

Norvento is a Spanish company that has an expanding international presence in renewable energy development, operation and manufacture.

It generated a total output of 366,711 MWh in 2012 and began developing its new product line for distributed wind energy projects in 2008.

The nED100 was launched in 2013 following an extensive testing programme and has been targeted at key international markets, introducing large-scale wind innovation into medium-scale distributed wind.
