The durability of the Bergey Excel 10kW turbine has been put to the test in the Scottish Isles recently, following projects at the Isle of Lewis and the Isle of Coll. The installations from fast growing wind energy specialist SIAC Wind Energy, the sole distributor of the turbine in the UK and Ireland, once again demonstrate the capabilities of the Bergey within demanding wind conditions.
After just a single day in operation, the owner at the Isle of Lewis commented: “The Bergey turbine we have had installed at our property produced 270kWh in 24 hours, averaging at more than 11kW each hour. It seems to be running very well.”
Specified for their flexibility in adapting to a variety of locations, the single-phase and three-phase installations were completed in trying weather conditions in less than two days.
Conal McElroy, regional sales manager at SIAC Wind Energy, added: “The projects successfully illustrate the excellent flexibility of the Bergey 10kW turbine in adapting to a variety of locations. The immediate results recorded from the turbine in the Isle of Lewis underline the fact that the Bergey turbine is a reliable wind energy solution with the production capabilities to match. Renewable wind energy technology is the future, and we are delighted the two turbines have both been so well received in the Scottish Isles.” More installations are set to follow at Orkney in Scotland, as a result of these productive installations.
