Specialists for both onshore and offshore wind projects
Brunel helps both onshore and offshore wind projects finish on time, within budget, safely and compliantly.
Onshore is well established, proven technology, and also one of the cheapest energy sources available. The other major benefit is how quick it is to install and connect to a grid, a matter of a few months.
Offshore wind farms are generally much larger, involving more investment and time to develop, but also generate a lot more power.
Both need skilled specialists to design, build and operate. Wherever your windfarm is in the world, talk to Brunel.

Frequently Asked Questions
The principles of wind energy are quite simple - wind blows and turns 2 or 3 blades on a turbine, which is connected to a generator that creates electricity.
How much electricity a wind turbine can produce depends on the turbine's size and the speed of the wind. An average onshore wind turbine can produce more than 6 million kWh in a year – enough to supply 1,500 homes. An average offshore wind turbine of 3.6 MW can power more than 3,000 homes. The new giant turbines being installed offshore can produce enough electricity to power up to 20,000 homes.
Wind itself is an infinite source of power, there will always be wind blowing somewhere and it requires relatively simple methods to turn into electricity. The challenge faced is to be able to manufacture and recycle all the components, reducing waste to a level that the whole cycle of wind energy can truly be said to be renewable.
This is a tricky question, because some of the figures involved are very large. A modern large-scale offshore windfarm could cost several billion euros to build. The most important factor is how much the consumer then pays for the power generated, which is where economies of scale help - the bigger the windfarm the cheaper the power overall.
Yes! And it is the ability to store this power which makes wind a viable solution to supply consumers who have constant demands. Wind is inconsistent, sometimes unpredictable, if there is no wind then there is no power. New methods for storing power are constantly being developed, and as the technology improves, so does the overall capacity.
