Green Wind Energy Limited - simply put, Green Wind Energy plan, fund and construct single medium-scale wind turbines to provide a regular monthly income to farmers and landowners for two and half decades. But they also do so with a proven background of sound financial backing, a tried and tested expertise in wind farming, and a knowledge of and commitment to the local environment.  It's what one might expect from a small dedicated family-run company that has a passion for wind and that has been prospering over the last 20 years.

Green Wind Energy Ltd. is currently looking for land and plots in Northern Ireland, Scotland, England & Wales to either lease or buy for the purpose of  installing and commercially operating single wind turbines from 225kW up to 500kW.

Sites which already have existing building permits for wind turbine operation are preferred!

Lease terms offered:

Reimbursement of initial planning permission costs plus value added bonus (to be negotiated).

Option 1 – Outright lease – payable quarterly or

Option 2 – quarterly minimum lease fee plus share of revenue.

Minimum lease term required: 25 years

Day-to-Day business activities are being managed by the two appointed directors Carlo Vormweg and Ralph Ruppert. Ralph built up his own successful company, MWPS World, globally trading in new and used wind turbines, before setting up GWEL on behalf of Vormweg-Wind. Ralph's key activities are in sourcing suitable sites locally across Northern Ireland, talking with the landowners, negotiating lease agreements, managing the development of projects, and liaising with local construction and transport companies to establish  connection and commissioning the wind turbines to the grid whereas Carlo overseeing operations from his office base in Germany.

Carlo Vormweg and Ralph Ruppert rely on their contracted Project Engineer, Martin Murphy, a Northern Irishman whose local knowledge of the country and three decades of expertise in the construction industry make him an invaluable contractor to the company.

While 2014 was a good year for GWEL in Northern Ireland with four sites going into operation, 2015 promises to be even better, with new sites scheduled to commence operations next summer. The company are scouting out for more sites to develop in partnership with local landowners: They are currently looking for land and plots in Northern Ireland to either lease or buy on which to install and operate commercially single wind turbines of up to 250kW nominal power.


The family business started out in their journey on the wind with two Vestas V42 - 600kW each wind turbine some 20 years ago. From those humble beginnings, Fritz Vormweg (graduate machine engineer), Josef Vormweg (graduate construction engineer) and later Carlo Vormweg, who joined the business in 2008after graduating with a Master’s Degree in Business Management (MScBM), have steered the Sole Trader company ’Vormweg-Wind’ to be a significant and respected producer and generator of wind energy with over 90MW of wind generation sites developed and over 60 wind turbines installed and commissioned to date of which some project being sold after completion. The 100% privately owned Family Business currently operates and manages 36 wind turbines in the range from 600kW  up to 3,000kW with Vestas V90's & Enercon E82's among other wind turbines totaling a capacity of 33MW. This already impressive inventory of high tech wind energy equipment had further additions this year with three 225kW wind turbines being installed in Northern Ireland with another two, fully refurbished, 225kW Vestas V27 scheduled for installation in summer 2015 at two newly approved sites near Clough Mills. 

The company has operations in Germany, France and Netherland, but just over four years ago, after an introduction by Ralph Ruppert, Managing Director of MWPS Limited aka MWPS World, set up camp in Northern Ireland by forming Green Wind Energy Limited, a purpose vehicle company whose sole purpose is to develop single unit 250KW wind turbine sites across the length and breadth of Northern Ireland using fully refurbished Vestas V27 wind turbines following their decommissioning in the Netherlands.
