Budding wind turbine supplier EU Energy is to supply Canadian project developer Energy Logics with 50 of EU's DeWind turbines in 2008. The agreement brings EU Energy's North American orders to more than 1300 2 MW turbines, including 550 with Exergy, 263 with Anemos, 250 with Northwinds Advisors, 170 with Midwest Wind Energy Finance and 60 with Canadian Green Power. All units through 2007 will be delivered from the former DeWind factory in Germany. British EU Energy, owned by California cable maker Composite Technology Corporation (CTC), has plans for a second DeWind facility to be running in the US in the first quarter of next year. "We're looking at various North American sites and all of them are competing for the job and offering economic incentives," says CTC's James Carswell. "We'll be making a decision by the end of the year." CTC, which acquired EU Energy earlier this year, is also looking at international locations for additional DeWind manufacturing facilities.
