Potato supplier Greenvale AP has been granted planning permission for a wind turbine at its site in March, Cambridgeshire, that it says will help to reduce its carbon footprint.
The 2MW turbine is intended to supply the site with electricity at a stable price over the long term.
Renewables specialist contractor Wind Direct has taken the site through the planning process and will operate the project on behalf of Greenvale. Construction is expected to begin towards the end of the year, once commercial agreements are concluded and planning conditions met.
Wind Direct chief operating officer Frances Karki said: "Greenvale is committed to carbon reduction and the wind turbine will further demonstrate its level of commitment to customers and suppliers alike."
A Greenvale representative added: "The planning success is great news for the company and the environment. We have our own policy aimed at reducing the varied environmental impacts that arise from our activities and the planned installation of the Wind Direct turbine will go a long way towards reaching our targets."
The two firms are also looking at the possibility of erecting a similar turbine at Greenvale's facility at Duns, Berwickshire.
But to establish the viability of the site, planning permission must first be granted for a temporary 70m meteorological mast.
Four Greenvale AP sites have been awarded the Occupational Health & Safety Assessment Series 18001 certificate, showing that it meets or exceeds its legal health and safety obligations. The sites, in Berwickshire, Shropshire and Cambridgeshire, are home to four-fifths of the company's 750 employees.
