Filming the installation of a 17 metre high wind turbine for Coemi wind turbines, one of the UK’s leading wind turbine installers, on a high hill in the green pastures of Devon has been an education.
These amazing Skywing G3 windmills are part of the solution to Britain’s green energy puzzle; this particular model will generate 20kW per hour at full capacity.
And a wind turbine is a thing of great beauty, not only does it look good and generate clean energy, but its hooked up to the net so maintenance can be carried out online.
The really great element to the day’s filming was a time lapse showing the ease with which the turbine went from its installation position to fully standing in less than 20 minutes because of an inbuilt hydraulic ram fitted to the base. Utterly balletic!
For the price of a week’s film production, the Skywing G3 film will be seen globally on YouTube and on Coemi’s website and will soon be busy raising brand awareness and spreading the microgeneration message![youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRYTOCPe-BQ]
