Tonga’s first Wind Turbine at Nakolo is ready to operate


Amongst the guests were, the Estate Noble Lord Luani, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Public Enterprise and the President of the Church of Tonga Semisi Fonua.

The wind turbine Project Manager, Setitaia Chen, says “There was a mutual feeling of absolute pride and joy felt throughout the project team including the Gaia support crew once the turbine was up, last bolt torqued and the cables to the control of the wind turbine connected and switched on. Hands on support and training from Gaia Wind was top notch and a great bunch of guys to work alongside, it comes without saying that the project team lead by Lolohea Hala’ufia and Murray Sheerin put every bit of effort in the successful installation of the wind turbine which I am sure will speak for itself when you visit the turbine site.” Mr Chen also thanked William Fonua for giving them the piece of land to locate the wind turbine.
