Gaia-Wind and Strathclyde University to improve turbines

Researchers at Strathclyde University are working with Gaia-Wind to develop new wind turbine systems that will enhance the technology’s efficiency.

The University’s Centre for Advanced Condition Monitoring (CACM) is working with engineers at Gaia to develop technology to maximise performance and availability for the current and future product range.

Gaia-Wind, a producer and exporter of Scottish manufactured farm scale wind turbines, achieved sales of £6.7m by 2011, a growth of 168 per cent a year over three years.
