Two Tacke Windtechnik TW 600 kW turbines have been installed at Ainazi on the Latvian Baltic coast by Germany's second largest electricity company, Preussenelektra, and the Latvian utility, Latvenergo. The two machines are expected to generate an annual 2.7 million kWh. Preussenelektra and Latvenergo signed a co-operation agreement which paved the way for the project at the end of 1993. "In this way we are making a contribution to the development of the energy industry in the young democracies amongst the countries bordering the Baltic," says the German company. The project, supported by the German Federal Research Ministry, is also viewed as one minuscule building block within Preussenelektra's greater aim of creating a "Baltic ring" by connecting the electricity grids of all the countries bordering the Baltic.
