According to Fuhrlander Ukrainian-German there are plans to produce 2-3 turbines by the end of the current year. The projected volume for 2012 is about 40 turbines.
It also added that the first wind turbines, with a capacity of 2.5 MW each, are expected to be produced from German parts.
Starting from 2012 the company plans to use locally-made components, which will probably be supplied from plants located in nearby Lutsk.
Fuhrlander machines are being used on the first project using MW-class turbines in Ukraine, the 25MW Novoazovskiy project in the Donetsk region near the Azov Sea.
Fuhrlander is the second global manufacturer to announce plans to start production in Ukraine.
In June 2011, Danish Vestas, the world's largest manufacturer of wind turbines, announced it would produce towers for wind turbines at the Yuzhmash plant.
