Wetherby based Caddick Developments, part of Caddick Group, has diversified into the wind energy market with a new turbine in Knottingley.
The 47 metre turbine will supply renewable energy directly to the nearby Caddick Construction head office, providing all of the building’s annual power requirements.
Myles Hartley, director at Caddick Developments, said: “The wind turbine at Knottingley marks a milestone for Caddick Developments and the Group as a whole.
“It’s our first step into the renewable energy sector and we are expanding further with this technology on other sites around the UK.
“Wind is a reliable and efficient renewable energy option and the installation at Knottingley contributes to our sustainability targets and provides energy security for the future.
“We have a number of other single turbine projects at an advanced stage around the country and foresee that renewables will become an important part of the Group’s business in the coming years, in addition to our core property development activities.”
Andrew Murray, managing director at Caddick Construction, said: “Today marks a milestone for Caddick Group. Providing energy for all of the lighting and heating needs of the office is great and works towards making the Construction team’s office self-sustainable.
“Wind power is a technology the Group has researched and selected carefully; we’re delighted to that the installation of this one turbine can provide enough energy to power the office of the Group’s construction arm of the business.”
