‘I am truly thrilled that we have achieved MCS certified for our qr5 V1.3 wind turbine. Not only does it provide our customers with valuable feed-in tariffs, but also gives them additional knowledge and confidence that our turbine has been independently approved by an impartial organisation. The turbine's performance, reliability, acoustics and safety systems have been independently verified to meet the MCS standards that are based around prestigious International and British Standards.
This latest accolade only adds to our already rigorous in-house test and development programme that we apply to all of our products.
To be the first VAWT and one of a few small wind turbines that have achieved this standard only enforces our approach to be one of the leading small wind turbine companies on the world’.
