TW 600 TURBINES CERTIFIED IN HOLLAND

Holland has certified the Tacke Windtechnik TW 600 turbine from Germany for sale on the Dutch market. Projects using the machine are now eligible for state subsidies. It is the second largest turbine to be officially certified in Holland. Options on wind turbine contracts have been signed with several Dutch partners. One of these is Windfarmers BV, a commercial project developer which intends to build a wind farm at Moerdijk industrial site. It will have eight TW 600 turbines in its first phase. Sites for second and third phases have also been reserved. According to Gerard Schwenke from Erbeko, an energy consultancy in Hilversum assisting Windfarmers BV, the German turbine was a better buy than wind turbines available in the Netherlands, with a price difference of at least 25%. Schwenke says larger turbines are preferable because the larger the turbine the cheaper the cost per kWh. The developers are also looking at other large turbine designs for the next phases of the project. Construction at Moerdijk will depend on whether the project is selected for 1994 subsidies and whether planning permission is forthcoming.
