Endurance Wind Power Installs its first turbine in the UK.
Vancouver, BC August 5th 2010 - The first Endurance E-3120 was installed on a hilltop close to the Ludwell's East Ash Farm in Devon County, southwest England.
"I would like to thank Mr. Ludwell for being our first customer in the United Kingdom. It was exciting to be part of this project and bring our first European turbine online with ease. The installation was straightforward from beginning to end and it was completed in only three days. I am confident that Mr. Ludwell will be satisfied with the performance of his turbine and I look forward to the subsequent installs that will come for other customers" said Nigel Webster, Director, Dulas Ltd., Professional Services for Renewable Energy.
"This marks a significant milestone for Endurance Wind Power. This first customer signifies not only the first installation in the United Kingdom, but in all of Europe and it establishes a footing in our aspiration to become a leader in the rapidly-growing European distributed wind energy market" said Glenn Johnson, CEO of Endurance.
Endurance is expecting that by the end of this month it will also receive its CE Certification, which declares that their turbine meets European safety, health, and environmental requirements.
Europe's wind industry market has seen substantial growth in the past few years. High energy costs, combined with high deliverable wind speeds and enticing feed-in-tariffs provide the ideal environment for the wind industry to flourish. While Endurance has expanded across the United States for the past few years, one of their goals has always been the eventual expansion into European markets. That day has now come.
