First wind plant in Cuba

The island 100 kilometres southwest of the Cuban mainland where Fidel Castro was imprisoned from 1953 to 1955, Isla de la Juventud, has become home to the country's first wind power plant. The 1.65 MW facility was built on a turnkey basis by Vergnet, a French company specialising in development and manufacture of small wind turbines mainly for off-grid application in cyclone regions.

The six, two-bladed GEV MP 275 kW units were installed by Vergnet's Guadeloupe subsidiary. The company says it has a number of other projects lined up over the coming years to a schedule agreed with the Cuban government. The first plant was inaugurated in February.
