The heavy horses have been back on Gigha in recent times, working the land like they had done in years past. Neil McPhail and Michael Mayberry of Skernish were at the site of Gigha 's new wind 330kw turbine, carrying out re-instatement works on 3km of 11kV underground cables that were laid in January 2013. Whilst the bulk of the work had been carried out by tractor, the final stages were left in the capable hands of Tommy and Poacher – the award winning Skernish Clydesdales.


Gigha Green Power Limited (GGPL) is a community-owned company that are installing a 4th turbine on Gigha, providing more income to the island for all its future projects such as it Housing Improvement Project.

Nsure are delighted to congratulate their client Evance Wind Turbines Ltd in respect of the commissioning of three R9000 small wind turbines at Scottish Water's water treatment works on the island of Stronsay in Orkney.


Due to the grid connection limitation Evance has installed the R9000 Grid+ system, so enabling the maximum energy from each 5kW turbine to be captured and used, while only allowing 3.68kW to be connected to the grid, so complying with the requirements of G83.

In November of 2011, Liquid Robotics dropped four of its brand new Wave Glider robots in the water just off the coast of San Francisco with hopes of making history and learning a thing or two in the offing. Two of the robots would set a course for Japan and the other two for Australia, each destination roughly 9,000 nautical miles away. It was to be the longest journey ever taken by any autonomous vehicle, a slow but steady swim across the entire Pacific Ocean that would collect and relay high resolution oceanographic and atmospheric data all along the way, stopping only for a quick maintenance check-up in Hawaii--if they made it that far at all.


And so Liquid Robotics' engineers dumped their robots into the rolling water and turned them loose, uncertain as anyone else whether the robots could survive the weather, waves, and wildlife they would surely encounter on a trans-Pacific crossing. There are sharks out there, after all. Massive waves and gale-force winds. There's a whole lot of saltwater out there, itself a force for destruction and disruption of mechanical systems. And yet almost exactly a year after launching the Wave Glider known as "Papa Mau" navigated around the Great Barrier Reef and arrived off the coast of Queensland Australia in May 2012, half a world away from where it started and only somewhat worse for wear.

Britain's windfarms broke a new record on Friday 14th September 2012 by providing over four gigawatts of power to the National Grid – enough to light and heat more than 3m British homes.


It beats a previous high of 3.8GW set in May and comes as a further 4GW of wind turbines are being installed, half on land and half offshore.
