Sectors

At SD Wind Energy we believe that generating energy and using it at the point of source is 100% the future of the energy market world-wide, which is why our small wind turbines and hybrid energy systems are being installed across multiple sectors and within a variety of different environments.

Traditionally, small wind turbines have been the technology of choice within the agricultural sector. This is understandable; with open space, a clean wind resource and the need to diversify within the farming community. However, today our small wind turbines and hybrid systems are equally as effective in other areas.


The core sectors which SD Wind Energy currently operate, but are not limited to, are:

Rural Electrification

17% of the world's population is without electricity. The areas affected include remote villages, rural dwellings in mountainous locations and communities on remote islands and which aren't connected to their native mainland.

SD can design and supply turnkey solutions such as mini-grids or stand-alone systems for these applications. The creation of micro/mini-grids is emerging as the solution to a long-standing problem of energising these remote locations, which otherwise cannot be connected to the main electricity grid due to distance, logistics or cost.

The cost saving and environmental benefits of these applications are significant as they eradicate the need for fossil fuels and ensure energy protection for years to come.

Oil & Gas

atex-logo.pngWe have the World's First and ONLY ATEX approved Small Wind Turbine. Successfully operating on unmanned Oil & Gas platforms in the North Sea for over a decade, our turbines are now being deployed across the globe.

As well as ATEX approved systems, we also offer Marine Grade solutions to provide an alternative for Safe Zone Environments or coastal locations.

Full system design, installation, commissioning and service contracts are available within the Oil & Gas sector, as with all applications supplied by SD. We can also supply fully integrated systems, full DNV approval and provide factory acceptance testing.

Telecoms

Small scale energy systems, or 'micro-generation' is ideally placed to address the historical and current energy dilemma in the telecommunications sector, eradicating the need for diesel generators on remote sites.

It is estimated that as much as 70% of mobile telecom towers face electrical grid outages on average 8 hours a day. This creates an energy problem that without small scale wind or hybrid energy systems, telecom operators need to rely on expensive and polluting fossil fuels, such as diesel generators.

Ease of integration is at the core of SD Wind Energy's design concept; with several different packages and solutions available to support telecom operators in achieving full power autonomy and protection against grid outages and ultimately, loss of power.

Industrial & Commercial

With ever increasing energy costs, the need for reducing carbon emissions as well as energy overheads, more and more businesses are using small wind turbines to meet their renewable needs.

Saving energy whilst producing your own is the new trend in the business sector, which is why having a recognisable renewable technology on your land will help demonstrate your business' commitment to carbon reduction in the local area.

Small Scale wind is unobtrusive and when sited correctly, can make a real statement about your business, whilst also making a positive contribution to your energy demands.

Agricultural & Rural Domestic

Our small wind turbines offer attractive benefits for rural domestic and smallholding customers for on-site energy generation. Often allowing total independence from the national grid, our wind turbines are ideally positioned to power rural applications including agricultural businesses, farms and homes.

Operators can benefit from an additional source of income from the turbine (where a renewable energy subsidy or tariff is available) or by exporting excess energy to the grid.

Installing a small wind turbine in an agricultural setting is fast becoming the most popular way of producing your own electricity and ensures the farm, business or property is achieving energy security for decades to come.

As our turbine foundations can be landscaped over once installed, general farming and grazing is unaffected and the agricultural land can then also benefit from farming energy as well as its livestock and crops.

Installation & Servicing

SD Wind Energy turbines are installed and serviced at ground level and therefore do not require expensive cranes or plant hire. The innovative hydraulic masts allow for quicker service inspections, which minimises downtime and costs.
