Toyota Wants To Power Engine Factory With Wind
Members of Flintshire County Council in the UK are considering a planning application from Toyota for a temporary wind monitoring mast at the automakers engine factory in Flintshire’s Deeside Industrial Park, icWales reports. The 60-meter mast would monitor wind speeds at various heights over 12 months, to determine the viability of using wind power.
Graham Hillier of Toyota UK said no decision would be taken on the number or size of wind turbines until the monitoring results were available.
“From our viewpoint, it’s a green and cost-effective method to help our business,” he said. “It complements Toyota’s green credentials. In our European region there’s a strong emphasis on environmental issues.”
The Deeside factory has a rainwater harvesting system with reverse osmosis to purify the water.
