Viaton Industries is to build a wind turbine on its Brassington site after Derbyshire Dales District Council last week granted planning permission for a single turbine, predicted to provide around 6,570MW/h per annum based on an application prepared by environmental and town planning specialist Atmos Consulting.

Viaton’s energy consumption costs have risen astronomically and generating its own renewable energy is an increasingly attractive option to significantly reduce manufacturing costs. Seventy per cent of the energy produced from the wind turbine will be used on site at Viaton, with any surplus being fed into the grid at times the plant is not operating.
