A local Argentinean power company, Cooperativa Punta Alta, is buying three Bonus 600 kW turbines from German developer AN Windenergie. The turbines will be erected near Bahia Blanca by AN Windenergie in the autumn. The DEM 3.4 million project follows the German wind developer's first Argentine wind farm near Mayor Buratovich. It was responsible for the development of two out of five turbines at the site six months ago (Windpower Monthly, January 1998). Both projects have been co-financed by Germany's federal ministry for education, science, research and technology through its Eldorado aid program. AN Windenergie says other projects are in the works for Argentina, which has become an important element of the company's export business.
