Gaia Wind looks to generate more profit with turbines

December 03, 2012

IT seems there should be a punchline to the one about the Dutchman who bought a Danish wind turbine company and brought it to Scotland.

But there is no joke about the success Johnnie Andringa has had since spotting an opportunity to develop Gaia Wind.

The softly spoken 49-year-old has a quiet enthusiasm which works its way into his words.

He talks animatedly about buying the business in 2006 from its owners in Denmark, relocating it to Glasgow and growing it to a near £10 million turnover company which designs, assembles and sells small scale wind turbines.

He said: "We can build five, six or sometimes seven turbines a week.

"We will sell about 300 turbines this year, which is about 50% up on last year, and at the growth rate we are trying to maintain for the next few years."
