Holland Wind Turbine



We are excited to confirm that we have installed a 100 KW wind turbine on the CR Holland Crane property.  The NPS 100C is the next generation of magnet direct drive distributed wind turbine.  This generator will service our facility with electricity, reduce our environmental impact and make the future better for us and our children. This has been a long and tedious process that is a long-term investment for our company and would not have been possible without the support and quick response from the City of Forest City.
The wind turbine will help offset our electrical usage and generate some electricity that will be sold back to the City of Forest City to reduce their required output; ultimately reducing the overall environmental impact.  The wind turbine will help us reduce our operational costs over the proposed 20 year life-cycle of the wind turbine.
