UK Ford facility on 100% wind power

Ecotricity has erected a third wind turbine at Ford’s expanded Dagenham Diesel Centre in the UK.


Sep 21, 2011 - Kari Williamson -

The Ecotricity wind turbine could generate close to 5 million units of energy annually. It joins two other wind turbines that have been operational since May 2004.

When the first two wind turbines were erected, every Ford diesel car or van engine made was built entirely using wind energy. As demand at Ford has grown, the plant has expanded, requiring more energy to run it – hence the third wind turbine, Ecotricity says.

The three wind turbines will provide 100% of the Ford Dagenham Diesel Centre’s (DDC) energy needs, which produces engines for a range of vehicles including the Focus and Transit van.

Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity, says: “Together with Ford, Ecotricity pioneered the use of wind to power an entire manufacturing plant. We are really pleased to come back and build a third windmill so that the green energy supply keeps pace with the demand from customers for more fuel-efficient, diesel engines.”
