‘Gilfresh want to produce renewable energy for the future!’

Customer information:

Name: Thomas Gilpin
Company: Gilfresh Produce
Turbine: Vestas V29

Turbine operational since 2017

It was not the question if, but when, a wind turbine would arise at the Gilfresh site in Loughgall, Co. Armagh. Director Thomas Gilpin, has the aim to produce almost as much renewable energy as prepacked vegetables.  The wind turbine was erected in 2017 in a turnkey project managed by Bettink Service Team Ltd and joins an Anaerobic Digester which Thomas installed in 2015. ‘We, at Gilfresh, want to produce renewable energy for the future’, Thomas said. ‘It is not only the aim to sell vegetables for a healthy lifestyle, but we also think about how we can contribute to a healthy environment. We really believe in the force of renewable energy and with this type of energy we can definately fulfill this goal.’ Gilfresh is one of the companies in Northern Ireland that not only talks about renewable energy, but also invest in it.

‘We wanted a company that have knowlegde about wind turbines. Bettink ticked all the boxes.’

‘Bettink will also take care of our turbine with the all-in Garant contract. This gives us a total peace of mind.’

Thomas continues: ‘It was in the summer of 2016 that Bettinks sales manager stopped by to inform us about their services and the possibilities that they offer turnkey projects for single wind turbines.’ ‘This was definately something we liked! We know everything about vegetables, but not that much about wind turbines. We wanted a company that had knowledge about wind turbine and Bettink ticked all the boxes.’

Now the turbine is installed, Bettink will also service and maintain the turbine through their all-in-one Garant contract. Thomas says: ‘This gives us a total peace of mind. We can focus on our company and the quality of our fresh products to satisfy customers, while Bettink focuses on us.’
