New windmill products are set to replace old ones in the U.K. and U.A.E. as a result of an ongoing investigation, the UK government said Thursday.
A new batch of older windmiller products, including those for a range of applications, will be manufactured in the country, the Ministry of Energy said.
“As part of our ongoing windmilling investigations, we have been working with industry partners to review all of the windmilled products we currently manufacture in the UK,” the energy department said in a statement.
The U.J.C.P.E., which represents manufacturers, also said the company is cooperating with the investigation.
“Windmills were being produced in the United Kingdom for over 20 years before the closure of the UJA Energy Group in 2020,” the organization said in an emailed statement.
“We are pleased that the UJC.
S investigation has resulted in the closure and suspension of UJA’s windmiles operations.”
The UJA group, which operated in the European Union from 2006 to 2016, said in its statement that it “took all measures necessary to address the circumstances surrounding the closure” of the operation.
“We are now in discussions with the UJO to ensure that the windmill will be fully operational and fully supported for at least another 10 years,” the statement read.
