Wind Turbine For Flahavans Porridge Co. Waterford

Wind Turbine For Flahavans Porridge Co. Waterford


In 2015 Enerpower installed a Vestas V44 600KW wind turbine at Flahavans, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford. Enerpower’s wind turbine has allowed Flahavans to generate 1500MWh of electricity per year to power their site.

Located in Co. Waterford, Flahavans, a family business has been producing quality oats since 1785. John is managing director of the company. He came from a big family and his own kids – the seventh generation of Flahavans – all worked at the mill as well. Every day 120 tonnes of porridge oats are milled at Flahavan’s factory where 54 workers deliver breakfast to millions of tables around the world. Flahavans are dedicated to supplying their customers with the finest porridge and oat products.

With its very reliable robust design, the Vestas wind turbine has a payback period of approximately 5 years.  The installation of the wind turbine has significantly reduced Flahavan’s carbon footprint. Flahavan’s site can be considered to be one of the most modern and advanced porridge and oat production units in Europe.

Managing Director John Flahavan commented that ”clean energy is the way forward”
