Norfolk pig farmer benefits from small wind turbine

November 04, 2011

Norfolk farmer John Blackburne runs a small 13 acre pig farm in North Pickenham.  It is situated next to an old Second World War airfield on which there is 8 large wind turbines. “It was fairly clear it was a decent site for wind.  The average wind at 10 metres is 4.8 m/s so at 18 metres the turbine should have an average of about 5.1 m/s , although with clear views to the south west, north and north east we hope the average wind may be slightly better than has been suggested.”
“We did about a year of research around the best small turbine for our situation – it was fairly clear that the Gaia 11kW turbine would out perform its competition and give the best return per £1000 of investment, especially on a relatively low wind site.  We had 3 phase electricity supply which is one of the requirements of the Gaia turbine.”
