Wind Farms

Smiths Norwich

Wind farming is a buoyant energy sector across Norfolk and Suffolk

Wind Farming reflects successful renewable energy initiatives across Norfolk and Suffolk, and we supply engineering materials to support this sector.

Power generation has long been a traditional market activity in our area, but in recent years, the appetite for low cost, renewable energy is now at the forefront.

About Wind Farms

The wind farm sector in both Norfolk and Suffolk has grown at a considerable pace. Harnessing the power of the wind to create energy is cleaner, more sustainable and cost-effective. With more than 130 miles of coastline, our territory boasts numerous wind farm projects. From turbine blades to structures, we support the sector with high-quality engineering materials.


Wind farming operations are here to stay, but the sector still faces technological challenges. Fossil fuel power plants scale output to meet consumer demand, but wind farms find this aspect much more difficult. However, new technological innovations may resolve these problems. For example, using the remnants of gas from a redundant shale seam to up the power of wind turbines during high demand is being explored, as is the option to combine solar with existing wind turbine technologies.

Smiths Norwich fully supports the renewable energy sector. With our broad range of material products, we offer solutions for our customers for next-generation renewable energy initiatives to leave the planet with a lower carbon footprint.
