Dutch lead wind turbine supply

Japanese industrial giant NKK Corp, the local sales agent of Dutch wind turbine manufacturer Lagerwey the Windmaster, has ordered another 19, 750 kW turbines. The order means that Lagerwey the Windmaster, the Netherlands' sole remaining wind turbine manufacturer, is now the leading wind turbine supplier to Japan. It has delivered 119 of the LW 50/750 -- a gearless machine developed by Lagerwey before it took over fellow Dutch firm Windmaster -- with a combined capacity of 90 MW. The turbine has a rotor diameter of 50.5 metres and a ring generator. All 19 of the just ordered turbines are to be installed this year. Ten of them are destined for a number of smaller projects on the southern island, Kynshu. Six machines are for a project in the vicinity of Kyoto, and the remaining three will be installed in Iwate prefecture, in the north Japanese main island, Honshu.
