Formed in June 2010, Forgen Renewables was established following a trade and asset purchase of the Forgen® vertical axis wind generator range from Goodridge Engineering Ltd. With a background and track record behind the Forgen brand dating back to 1986, Forgen Renewables can offer an ideal solution when looking a tried and tested renewable energy resource.
Situated in Clevedon, Forgen Renewables are a leading specialist in robust vertical axis wind turbines that maintain a charge on batteries used in marine applications as well as commercial applications.
The small scale vertical axis wind turbines are used extensively in very harsh environments of consistently strong winds and extreme cold temperatures such as that of the Antarctic, enabling a fully functional wind turbine that helps maintain battery charge. With continuous product development and improvement, Forgen Renewablesendeavour to always produce products for the most demanding environments.
The wind turbine embodies a high efficiency generator principle which is combined with turbine airflow expertise. The low inertia of the carefully balanced aluminium rotor assembly enables maximum advantages when considering all weather conditions. Using the most efficient design for the turbine drive and permanent magnet generator, the wind turbine can take advantage of wind from any direction when mounted vertically.
Forgen wind turbines are increasingly being applied to many wide and varied applications in the commercial sector where there is a need for small scale remote power such as wireless telecoms, remote bus shelter signage, weather station monitoring as well as many others.
Forgen®has invested heavily in further development of the product range. In 2012 the business signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Leadsun Technology, a world leading solar LED manufacturer to introduce unique second generation solar LED street lighting into the UK. A number of applications have already been successfully installed and Forgen is expecting more orders in the coming months thanks to partnerships with major distributors in the UK. As with all good technology companies the business continues to seek ways of improving and adding to its product range.
