Surrey-based Endurance Wind Power has opened new premises in Grandview Heights to expand its wind turbine assembly operations and head office professionals.
Endurance Wind is a distributor of wind energy and the company has growing sales in the UK, US, Italy and Canada.
This year alone 80 new jobs at Endurance were created with 40 of them in the Lower Mainland. These are new, clean energy jobs that help grow the cleantech manufacturing base in BC and increase the adoption of distributed energy from wind power, said, Glenn Johnson, CEO, Endurance Wind Power.
This new 40,000 square foot facility proves how far the company has come in a relatively short time. In 2007, the Surrey plant began with a vision of creating a global network of wind power to deliver affordable clean energy, Johnson adds.
Endurance is creating valuable jobs in Surrey by driving the growth of cleantech manufacturing for export around the world. They employ local graduates in engineering and manufacturing, said, Dianne Watts, Mayor, City of Surrey.
This is Endurance’s third office and second factory here in Surrey and this new facility will be their home for many years to come, added Watts.
The new facility will have their corporate headquarters and the manufacturing facility for their E3120 wind turbine. The 50 kW E3120 generates enough clean energy to power a dairy farm, hospital or school.
Endurance Wind Power is headquartered in Surrey, British Columbia and has offices in the UK, Italy and Denmark, test facilities in the US and manufacturing facilities in Canada and the UK.
Its 50 kW E-Series and 225 kW X-Series turbines are designed to meet the needs of distributed wind power applications such as farms, dairies, institutions and light industry.
Endurance owns 750 wind turbines installed worldwide which have generated more than 13 million operating hours.
