For the first time since the Vestfrost concern bought Danish wind turbine manufacturer Wincon in 1991, Wincon has turned a profit. Wincon earned DKK 75 million in 1999, according to Vestfrost's Erling Damkjær. He adds that the company has ducked out of the race to develop an offshore turbine, and megawatt sized units are also out of the picture. Instead, Wincon will focus on 600 kW and 750 kW machines. Wincon is also active in Germany, Poland and India, Damkjær adds. Vestfrost is 50% owned by the Electrolux concern of Sweden.
