FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The launch of Proven Energy's innovative 15kW wind turbine marks a significant advance in renewable power generation. The Proven 15 is the largest turbine in the Proven range, designed specifically for users with high energy needs who want to offset their carbon emissions.

Demand for the Proven 15 is strong and Proven Energy is currently processing orders from over 30 countries. Resource Data Management (RDM) has already installed a Proven 15 at its headquarters in Glasgow, as part of a new initiative called 'Wind Generated Energy'. RDM's Managing Director, Andrew Chandler, stated:
'We have taken this step because I believe strongly in doing as much as possible to help reduce our company's carbon footprint, raise its environmental credentials and promote new technology. Our customers, such as Marks and Spencer, have committed themselves to a sustainable approach to their business; this project reflects our commitment to them in achieving sustainability throughout the supply chain.'

Proven Energy's CEO, Andrew McMullan, added:
'The Proven 15 is ideal for commercial applications, including agriculture, telecoms applications, small industrial units and mini wind farms. It is capable of meeting the energy needs of six houses, each with three bedrooms, excluding heating. Any excess energy production can be stored or exported to the grid, depending on local regulations.'
Proven turbines are robust and reliable, producing energy under the harshest of weather conditions. In Japan recently, a Proven Energy turbine operated successfully through some of the fiercest typhoons on record. As part of the Proven 15 launch, Proven Energy has developed a new website to advise existing and prospective resellers and installers about the product. This site is now live:

Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
