The opening of a 6.5 MW wind farm in Etten Leur, in the province of Noord Brabant -- consisting of five Bonus 1.3 MW machines -- brings Holland's total installed capacity in 2002 to 107 MW, reports independent market monitor Wind Service Holland (WSH). This breaks the previous Dutch record for wind installations in one year, 105 MW, which was set in 1995 in the rush to complete projects before the end of capital subsidies. Further wind projects now nearing completion should take the final year total to some 150 MW, reports WSH.
