Clipper to Develop 7.5 MW Wind Turbine

Clipper Windpower has announced that is has chosen Blyth, Northumberland in the United Kingdom as the site for the development of its new offshore wind turbines.

Called the Britannia Project, the $65 million development program will develop a 7.5 MW wind turbine using Clipper’s technology. North England’s Centre of Excellence for New and Renewable Energy will provide engineering, testing and development services in support of the project.

“We established the project in support of the U.K. Government’s ambitious plans to generate more than 20% of the country’s electricity from renewable sources,” said James Dehlsen, chairman and CEO of Clipper. “This is both a responsible and necessary endeavor considering growing worldwide concerns over global warming and climate change.”
