Six turbines operating at Nissan car plant

Six turbines have begun operating at Nissan's Sunderland car manufacturing facility in north-east England. The 4 MW wind farm will save up to 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year and will supply around 5% of the energy used at the factory where the Micra and Prima models are manufactured for the European market. The wind station uses second-hand turbines from Germany. Nissan's Graham Bagley says the company is pleased with the initial output. "The farm is the first of its kind for any Nissan facility and is receiving great interest globally from within the company."
