Case Studies

KW6 Wind Turbine

Mr Roland Hawkins, Aithsetter, Cunningsburgh, Shetland Isles

Installation Details


Turbine Type: KW6


Tower: 15m ARE Hydraulic


Foundation: Pad


Colour: Grey RAL7000


Peak Power 6.1kW


From one month the turbine has produced 3,000 units!


“In the past our heating has been mainly wood & coal, with electric heating usually only on during the night. So far this winter we’ve switched almost entirely over to electric heating throughout the house, but our electricity bills are down by 60-70%, because of how much the turbine is producing!

I am extremely pleased with the turbine performance and service from Nordri!”

4 KW6 Wind Turbines

Mrs Marina Nicolson, Valleyfield Guest House, Brae, Shetland Isles

Installation Details


Turbine Type: KW6


Tower: 15m ARE Hydraulic


Foundation: Pad


Colour: Grey RAL7000


Peak Power: 24.4kW


In the first year the 4x KW6 wind turbines generated approximately 80,000kWh of power.  This provided a substantial income through Feed-In Tariff (FIT) payments and also meant that electricity bills at the guest house were slashed by over £500 per month

This installation is also the winner of the Kingspan Wind Global KW6 Installation of the year for 2014

KW6 + Thermal Store

Mr George Halcrow, Shelora, Cunningsburgh, Shetland Isles

Installation Details


Turbine Type: KW6


Tower: 15m ARE Hydraulic


Average Production: 65kWh/day


Thermal Store Capacity: Approx 96kWh of energy


Electricity Purchased from Grid: 2.45 units per day


In the first six months, the turbine produced 11,810kWh – and this was during the summer months. This equates to approximately 65kWh/day.

Since the new thermal store was installed and commissioned, the traditional central heating has never been used once. Electricity bills show that the house now purchases an average of just 2.45 units per day, at a cost of only 36p, resulting in an estimated annual electricity bill of £134.

By contrast, the installation has earned over £2,200 in FIT and export payments, coming in at a rate of £12.12 per day. Local firm E&H Building Contractors worked in conjunction with Nordri to provide the fully integrated system.
