Successor to prototype to be produced ny Hanseatische

Wind company Hanseatische of Hamburg is to produce a new wind turbine later this year to succeed its prototype 500 kW, in operation for nearly a year at Danisch Ninhof near Kiel. The design will be improved to reduce noise and tested with 19 m blades. Germanischer Lloyd is now certifying the improved machine. Hanseatische employs seven in its wind energy division and has an unusually flexible approach to machine construction. The supply of the gearbox, rotor blades and generator, as well as assembly of the complete machine, will be put out to tender, with potential companies for assembly in both western and eastern Germany as well as in Poland. Hanseatische's policy of raising project finance by the controversial snowball system (Windpower Monthly, February 1994) is a handicap when it comes to persuading farmers to lease their land to the company for wind development, says the company's Nils Findeisen.
