BRETT MARTIN Website Gets Wind Of New Turbine

A new video detailing the delivery and installation of Brett Martin’s £2m, 100 metre high wind turbine is now available to view at the company’s website. As high wind speeds converge with high technology, viewers can see for themselves the landmark turbine which is now operational at Brett Martin’s County Antrim headquarters. Just visit

Brett Martin is a leading manufacturer of plumbing and drainage systems, plastic roof lighting, glazing materials and architectural rooflights. The turbine, based at the company’s 35-acre manufacturing site in Mallusk, is the largest single wind turbine on an industrial site in Northern Ireland. It will reduce carbon emissions by an anticipated 4,000 tonnes per year and also promises a potential windfall for customers as at least 20 per cent lower energy costs will enable more competitively priced products for the company’s UK and export markets.

“As a responsible and progressive company we are strongly committed to reducing our carbon footprint and to maintaining our competitive position,” said Brett Martin Managing Director, Laurence Martin.

“We have always invested in research and development to give us an edge and the wind turbine is no exception. It’s planning and installation has been sensitively and meticulously managed and planned over a number of years and now that it’s fully operational, we are proud to feature it on our website.

“We appreciate that our manufacturing processes are energy intensive and feel that being able to supply a large degree of our own power plays an important part in our environmental strategy.”

The three-bladed Enercon E-70 turbine can be seen for miles around the Brett Martin site and has attracted much local interest. It has a blade span of 71 metres and when the blade is fully extended the structure measures 99.5 metres from the ground to the blade tip. It has an output of 2.3mwatt.

The Mallusk site is both a manufacturing plant and operational headquarters for the Brett Martin group of companies which supply specialist plastic products for the construction, fabrication, print and display sectors worldwide.

The site is operational 24/7 and has a constant demand for energy. Unlike some wind turbine owners, Brett Martin can therefore utilise all of the energy it produces, and in turn limit energy demand from other sources.
